Description

Are you a budding Egyptologist?
Do you have a passion for learning about ancient history and the ancient world?
Do you have an amateur interest in ancient Egypt?

Some took part in the story of creation. Others brought about blessings and protection while others were masters of the dead, the afterlife and the underworld. Creative, manipulative, ambitious and passionate.

These are the stars of Egyptian mythology.

In this course, we will discuss the different Gods and Goddesses that the ancient Egyptians worshipped. We will also be covering the mythological stories that had been passed down from generation to generation. Which of them is the God of writing? Who were the creators? Did Set have any success in overthrowing Osiris?

There will be short quizzes at the end of each section to test your knowledge about what you learned.

Take this course NOW and continue your path in Egyptology!
