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?

Even those who are not well-versed in ancient history have heard of his name. Thousands of years ago, neighbouring nations wrote about him in their history books. Some of his actions back then have had a direct impact on modern life.

But who was Ramesses the Great?

In this course, we will discuss and analyze the life and times of Ramesses II. We will cover his biography, achievements, family life, military campaigns and majestic building projects. We will also take a look at modern archaeological finds related to him as well as some research and papers that have been published by various Egyptologists regarding Ramesses the Great.

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

This course is designed for those who already have basic knowledge of ancient Egyptian history. Students who need a quick overview of the history of Egypt can take my course here at Udemy called Become an Egyptologist: Introduction to Ancient Egypt.
