History is amazing and exciting!  I have a special passion for ancient Egyptian history.  Its a wonder that their culture thrived for thousands of years.  They never developed computers, cars, phones, yet they lived happily and successfully!  Quite different from our world.  I subscribe to an archeology magazine and will post new developments in the search through Egypt's sands of time!

This group is for those who love not just history but ancient history! From Ancient Egypt (and even earlier at times) to those civilization-busting Romans, we love all things early BC & AD! My personal passion is reading about ancient Egypt, but there is so much to explore from that early time period in human history. Who needs cell phones, cars, social internet sites, or computer hacking, to find intrigue, love, and adventure? Please share your favorite reads, authors, etc. Read books together, or not. This is just for fun and recommendations! Hope you discover something new and exciting here!
