Where are we going this Week?
Saturday, September 26th: Live from Cairo, Egypt

Discover Ancient Egypt with Pyramids, the Sphinx and Much More!

Saturday September 26th at 4pm EST

Join your local tour guide in Cairo, Arafa, as he takes you into the Ancient World of Egypt and unravels all the mysteries for you from a local perspective.

One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Great Pyramid of Giza is among the most impressive structures on Earth. The largest of the incredible pyramids located in the Giza Necropolis, the Great Pyramid is also called the Pyramid of Khufu, named for the Pharaoh for whom the giant tomb structure was built. Constructed over 4,500 years ago in the 2,500s BC, the structure stands at nearly 500 ft and stands in full to this day. Learn in detail about the amazing pyramids that have made it through countless leaders, wars and natural disasters. From how they were built to how they gained fame in Ancient Greece, the Great Pyramid is a wonder like no other. In the same complex, you will find the Great Sphinx. Standing at 240 ft, the history of the Sphinx is mysterious. Learn about the stories and theories of one of the world's oldest statues.

Built around the fertile Nile Delta, Ancient Egypt was one of the world's first great civilizations with advancements unmatched again for centuries.  Much of what is known today of Egyptian culture is due to their incredible work in preservation, especially mummification. With the plethora of information, Arafa will explain the world of Egypt over 4,000 years ago including language, hieroglyphics, and societal structure. Learn about what's so special about the most famous ancient Egyptian pharaoh, King Tut and how he easily could have been lost without a mention in the history books.
