EGYPT

Commanding pyramids reaching towards the gods ... piercing obelisks adorned with hieroglyphics ... caravans of camels trudging across ocher sand dunes—Egypt is a land of profound majesty and mystery, and a magnet for treasure hunters, history lovers, and adventure seekers. At its heart is the mighty Nile, a true oasis in the desert and the life-blood for Egypt’s enduring history and culture. The first settlers were drawn to its fertile banks in the tenth millennium BC, making Egypt one of the world’s oldest nation states. Over time, these primitive hunter-gatherers evolved into a formidable civilization ruled by pharaohs and marked by incredible prosperity. During their dynasties, these rulers left indelible marks on the Egyptian landscape. Tombs, temples, and monuments sprung up all along the Nile, and culture flourished, too: Writing, agriculture, and organized religion all developed under the pharaohs’ authority.

But their power was fleeting. Egypt’s prime location between Africa and Asia made it a target for conquerors, beginning with the Persians in 343 BC, and followed by the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Ottomans, and Europeans. Each of these rulers left their own mark (the Arabs, for example, transformed Egypt from a Christian country to an Islamic one). However, none of these governments could undo the pharaohs’ spell—their influence is as profound now as it was millennia ago, and relics of their reign are regularly uncovered by eager archaeologists and everyday Egyptians alike.

In recent years, Egypt’s ruling class has been in turmoil once again: the Arab Spring unseated longtime president Hosni Mubarak in 2011, and his successor, Mohamed Morsi was removed from power just two years later. Yet in spite of this unrest, there’s one thing that Egypt’s 92 million residents can be sure of—that the ancient allure of their country will always endure.
