Lesson Plan

Egyptology is the study of Ancient Egypt and Egyptian antiquities, and is a regional and thematic branch of the larger disciplines of Ancient History and Archaeology. A practitioner of the discipline is an Egyptologist, though Egyptology is not exclusive to such practitioners.

Many Egyptian temples are still standing today. Some are in ruin from wear and tear, while others have been lost entirely. The Egyptian structures are among the largest man-made constructions ever conceived. They constitute one of the most potent and enduring symbols of Ancient Egyptian civilization.
