Here are the most amazing facts you probably didn’t know about ancient egypt!
9 – Equality has been around, I told you!
Seems like the society of ancient Egypt was well ahead of its time on this issue, because men and women were equal under the law! That meant women were free to live without a legal male guardian and could make their own decisions.
There were however, certain limits in occupations. For example, a woman wouldn’t be allowed to hold a position in the army nor would a man be expected to be in charge of a household. However, everything else was equal. For example, women could marry whomever they wanted and later on divorce if things didn’t work out. Women could also buy and manage their own property, meaning a woman could inherit things down the female line in her family. Another fun fact was that neither sex was favored when it came to childbearing, as both sexes were seen as equal.
The Ancient Egyptian gods and goddess are another proof of how far the equality went, as each sex was determined to be as important as the other, and that each sex had a unique set of skills. Hey, that makes total sense to me, I KNEW men and women are different! Also, you might be surprised to learn that both sexes wore make-up, something that was more of a social norm rather than gender right.
8 – Who really built the pyramids?
The pyramids are as grand and mesmerizing as they can be. Majestic establishments of up to 455 feet built in order to offer shelter for the part of the dead king’s soul that stayed behind. Let’s just keep in mind the different technology available at the time, so it’s just utterly amazing how these structures were built. Having structures as grand as pyramids proves just how advanced of a civilization existed on earth back in those times.
If you try and think about the construction process, you probably get instant flashes of that Cleopatra movie where slaves are laboring their lives away while a supervisor slashes his whip on their backs. As it turns out, that is an extremely common misconception, and the one responsible for conjuring the myth is the Greek historian Herodotus, all the way back in the fifth century BC. While it is true that there were slaves in ancient Egyptian society, they were mostly used for domestic labors or for field work, tasks fairly easier compared to the tiring construction of the pyramids.
Actual construction workers who were rather skilled were used for the pyramids – it was considered a huge honor to work on the pyramids and workers took pride in their work. Most of them were paid workers who took two or three-month shifts at the construction site and used to sleep and eat near the building area. In fact, they were entitled to so many rights, that they actually could do labor strikes if they didn’t get paid on time. One method of payment included beer, meaning that a day of work was worth almost a gallon and a half of beer! Hey, I think I know a few people nowadays who’d still sign up for this agreement!

    I see a lot of people with comments regarding skin color and whatnot. I don't have any racial agendas with this video, I just thought the ancient Egyptians were a fascinating civilization. Who cares about what color their skin color is? Let's pay attention to what they actually accomplished.

    See 2.21 and realise the picture of slaves is of Black Egyptians a myth Europeans want to perpetuate of Black being synonymous with lower life form. Of courses colour matters when you do things like this.
