My First Lecture on Ancient Egypt

On April 23, 2014, I gave my first lecture about ancient Egypt. The lecture outline was:

1. The ancient Egyptian creation myth, with relevant images projected on a screen.

2. An overview of ancient Egyptian history.

3. A slide show of my July 2013, three-week stay in front of the Sphinx and the Great Pyramids of Giza, Egypt.

4. The Osiris and Isis death and resurrection myth.

5. The Egyptian Mysteries.

The lecture went well, I think, and inspired some to further research. Others expressed great interest in another lecture, focused more on the Egyptian Mysteries.

I enjoyed it! Although there were some technical difficulties, I don’t think there’s anything about ancient Egypt that could be boring. With some further research, perhaps I can work up a series of lectures, with┬áthis first one serving as an introduction to the world’s first civilization.800px-Great_Pyramid_Diagram.svg
