In ancient Egypt they worshiped cats, if you killed a cat, even accidently you would recieve the death penalty.There was also a goddess named bast (bastet) who was the goddess of cats. --><--Set is the Egyptian God of chaos, evil and loves nothing more to create mayhem. He was nicknamed the "Red God" which is belived why red is a evil color in egypt. He killed the God Osiris but Osiris's son, Horus came for revenge and after winning the 8 year battle banished Set to the upper realms of Ra where he became the voice of thunder.

The Rosetta Stone was discovered by the French in 1799, and was instrumental in cracking hieroglyphs. The stone contained passages written in Middle Egyptian, Demotic and Greek and in the 1820s French historian Jean-Francois Champollion finally translated and cracked Egyptian hieroglyphs!---->

<---Anubis was the god of mummification and also the god of death. He had a human body and the head of a jackal. His job was to prepare the bodies of the dead to be received by Osiris. When the Osiris worship came to power, Osiris took over many of Anubis' jobs as caretaker and protector of the dead. As this happened, Anubis became 'He Who is Before the Divine Booth', the god of embalming who presided over the funerary rituals. The funerary stm priests would wear a mask of the jackal god during the mummification process, symbolically becoming the god for the rituals.

Also known as the Pyramid of Khufu-->, it is the oldest of the Ancient Wonders of the World and the last one still largely intact. The pyramid is estimated to have around 2,300,000 stone blocks that weigh from 2 to 30 tons each and there are even some blocks that weigh over 50 tons.

The Ancient Egyptians called the nile river Ar or Aur which means "black". They named it this because the annual flood left black sediment along the river banks. The Nile River is actually 6695 kilometers (4184 miles) long. With such a long length, the Nile River is speculated to be the longest river in the world
