Egypt is known as one of the greatest civilizations of the past. For ancient Greeks it was a source of all wisdom. Roman emperors marvelled at such monuments as the pyramids, and in fact Egyptian statues and obelisks were sent to Rome. The worship of Egyptian gods and goddesses like Isis and Osiris spread as far as Britain. Fascination with Egypt began in the late 18th century and a vast number of ancient towns, temples and tombs have since been excavated. No country in the world can boast of many impressive ancient remains as Egypt. The Ancient Egyptians have indeed left a wonderful legacy of art, architecture and literature.
