 SILK ROAD JOURNEY TO EGYPT
June 5-27, 2021
Enjoy these interesting facts of the rich history of Ancient Egypt.

The English alphabet only has 26 letters, and it takes a little time for kids to learn how to turn those letters into words.  So, imagine being a child in Ancient Egypt where the alphabet contained over 700 symbols. Instead of letters, they used 700 hieroglyphs.

As if keeping up with all of those hieroglyphs wasn't enough, the Egyptians also had over 2,000 deities that they worshiped. Basically, there was a god (or goddess) for everything,
from the sky to evil. There was even a cat god.

Not only were men and women equals, but women could also become King if a monarch died without any sons.  That's not a mistake. The women were Kings, not Queens, as the word was not gender-specific.  The King's wife was considered the Queen. At least three women ruled Ancient Egypt successfully: Sobekneferu, Hatshepsut and Tausret.

Cleopatra is one of Ancient Egypt's most famous inhabitants and rulers, and today, she remains a cultural icon.  But what many people don't know is that this young woman with the storied past wasn't even Egyptian. Even though her family ruled Egypt for hundreds of years, she was actually Greek and the first in her family to speak the Egyptian language.

Few people realize that the Ancient Egyptians were quite advanced for their time, and many of their scientific and mathematical inventions are still in use today. In addition to irrigation, they include toothpaste, building practices, surveying land, quarrying, glass, planked boats, makeup techniques, medicinal practices, calendars, plows, paper, pen, keys, locks, board games and musical instruments.

Unlike many other cultures and civilizations, men and women were legally equals in Ancient Egypt. Women were expected to fill in for their husbands when it came to business matters, and they could own land and conduct business on their own.

Come experience those Ancient Days as you Journey to Egypt

SILK ROAD XII GRID-WIDE HUNT
  JOURNEY TO EGYPT
JUNE 5-27, 2021
Look for the Hint Pagoda (pictured below) on or near the poster at all your stops.
The hints will lead you to an identical Gift Pagoda that will be within 30 meters of the landing unless there are tracks leading you toward it.  In the event of a side hunt, there will be ample hints, but if you need more help you can always ask in the Historical Group Chat
 so if you haven't already, be sure and join at the first stop.
