We will learn about the history of the pyramids, gladiators, temples, tombs, invasions and raids, mummification, rituals, gods and religion, food and drink, fashion, music and entertainment, building techniques, pharaohs, slaves, the hierarchy of society, inventions, gender diversity and of course read and write in in ancient symbols and runes.
