HomeworkSpot > Ancient Egypt

Ancient Egypt

To the delight of scientists, Ancient Egyptians left behind lots of artifacts and information. The ruins of pyramids, tombs and temples offer us clues about life along the Nile thousands of years ago. If you can't get to Egypt (especially before your report is due), take our virtual trip to check out the Sphinx, learn how to read hieroglyphics or discover why mummification works so well. Here are a few of the best places to start:

  • Ancient Egypt
    Appropriate for younger explorers (grades 4-6), this site offers information on daily life, mummies, pharaohs, temples and writing. Learn about the everyday life of an ancient Egyptian, explore ancient ruins and solve challenging puzzles along the way.

  • Life in Ancient Egypt
    This Carnegie Museum of Natural History project offers articles and photos on daily life, religion and funeral practices.




  • The Ancient Egyptian Culture Exhibit
    Part of Emuseum, this site covers topics from art to religion. Be sure to explore the timeline section for short but informative bios of Egyptian kings and queens. The hieroglyphs section has an online tutorial to help you learn the secrets of reading glyphs.

  • The Discovery Channel's Ancient Egypt
    Offers numerous articles on mummies (learn how mummified seeds helped scientists figure out why dirt is brown), lifestyles (Egyptians and their cats) and monuments of the Egyptian world. The site has a great image gallery of famous pyramids and sculptures. In the multimedia room, you can watch an interview with the archaeologist who recently discovered the Tombs of Rameses’ 50 sons.

  • The Oriental Institutes' Collection
    This research institute in Chicago features a number of artifacts, including a statue of Horus, images of the Book of the Dead and the Mummy of Meresamun. Each photograph is accompanied with clear explanations and dates.

  • Pyramids: The Inside Story
    This site is devoted to the study of pyramids, as you may have already guessed. Articles and photos are based on a 1997 excavation. Explore reports from the chief archaeologist, interactive tours and great diagrams.
