Ancient Egypt still holds some of the greatest mysteries of the world even though it has been studied for hundreds of years Many of this great nations secrets will probably never be exposed Its monuments such as the Sphinx and the pyramids have become both a symbol of mystery and a link to the past One of our clues to the vision of ancient Egypt was the Palette of King Narmer One of the major images on the Palette of King Narmer is that of the Cow headed Goddess Hathor The cow is the symbol for mother she gives milk and life and there would be nothing without her The rest of this artifact shows the unification of a divided Egypt This union is depicted by the king wearing both the crown of Upper Egypt and the crown of Lower Egypt and also by the lions with intertwined necks When someone thinks of Egypt the first image to pop into their mind is probably that of the pyramids It is mind boggling how these massive structures could have ever been built without the aid of modern technology The exact purpose of the pyramids and how they were constructed are still unknown Inside of these amazing monuments are some of the oldest writings in the world The first pyramid was the Step Pyramid of King Zoser The worlds first known architect Imhotep designed the pyramid and was worshiped for 3000 years afterward It is believed that the king used the pyramid to help him ascend to heaven The Great Pyramid of Cheops is the most massive stone structure ever constructed Although built four millennia ago the Pyramids of Giza are the only of the 7 wonders of the ancient world to have survived into the present time These amazing structures once erected were overlaid with a layer of limestone and the peak was crested in gold Religion is the tie that held the nation
