Buildings are the largest and most tangible archaeological remains of ancient civilizations. In fact "civilization", from the Latin civitates, means “life in cities”. In this part the styles, technology and building materials of the ancient Egyptians will be covered, from early pre-dynastic period to the end of the New Kingdom. We will discuss variations in the timeline as reflected in their buildings; their archeological sites and individual construction
