Worship of this Egyptian goddess spread from Egypt to England
We may say at once that Dr. Smith is less happy in his essay to trace this influence than when he is simply analysing the ethnic constituents of the race which exercised it.
In dealing with the complicated question of possible early Egyptian influence upon the surrounding peoples, with regard to which our information is of the scantiest and most nebulous character, he is straying rather off his own ground, whereas in dealing with the early Egyptians themselves he is not only upon his own ground, but upon ground which he himself has made. Reisner and his assistants at Naged-Deir and in Lower Nubia. By Prof. Elliot Smith. Harper's Library of Living Thought.

The article explores anthropological perspectives on pharaonic Egypt ca. Central authority absorbed economic resources via local temples but had no interest in penetrating the minds of the people. The body horizon was the scale within the reach of individuals, underpinned by the organization of thought toward the ego in the center. It is typical of life in villages, where the physical and social experiences of intimacy converged in magical practices. Funerary culture epitomizes the body horizon, and its importance in Egypt reflects the village nature of early Egypt.
Ancient Egypt and the Modern World
British Broadcasting Corporation Home. There has long been a fascination in Britain with the world of ancient Egypt. What is it about this mysterious civilisation that so catches the imagination? Five thousand years ago the chain of independent city-states lining the River Nile united to form one long, thin country ruled by one king, or pharaoh.
Ancient Egypt was a civilization of ancient North Africa , concentrated along the lower reaches of the Nile River , situated in the place that is now the country Egypt. Egypt reached the pinnacle of its power in the New Kingdom, ruling much of Nubia and a sizable portion of the Near East , after which it entered a period of slow decline. During the course of its history Egypt was invaded or conquered by a number of foreign powers, including the Hyksos , the Libyans , the Nubians , the Assyrians , the Achaemenid Persians , and the Macedonians under the command of Alexander the Great. The success of ancient Egyptian civilization came partly from its ability to adapt to the conditions of the Nile River valley for agriculture. The predictable flooding and controlled irrigation of the fertile valley produced surplus crops, which supported a more dense population, and social development and culture. With resources to spare, the administration sponsored mineral exploitation of the valley and surrounding desert regions, the early development of an independent writing system , the organization of collective construction and agricultural projects, trade with surrounding regions, and a military intended to assert Egyptian dominance.
