Egypt: The Nile - Lifeblood of Egypt

"Highly Recommended. This voyage on the Nile presents an excellent look at Egypt." -Booklist
50 centuries ago - the Egypt of the Pharaohs. Of ancient Greeks and Romans. Of Christian Egypt. Of Islamic Egypt. All these people's lifeblood was and remains the Nile, the longest river in the world; nowhere is this more true than in Egypt, the most populated country in the Middle East and the second-most populous in Africa. The magnificent river flows northward, almost entirely through desert, from Sudan into Egypt, where since ancient times its civilization has depended on the Nile; here, along the banks of the river, you will find nearly all the cultural and historical sites of Ancient Egypt; even today, except for Mediterranean coastal towns, most of its population lies near the Nile. This cinematic study tells us the story of Egypt and the Nile, taking us on a memorable journey to incredible destinations such as the Pyramids of Giza, Cairo, ancient Memphis, Alexandria, the Suez Canal, holy Sinai, the Red Sea, the Temples of Luxor, Karnaw and Aswan. Produced by International Film & Video. 06/10DE IJSCA 45 min.
