Do you want to learn more interesting facts about Egypt? Then come on, work the puzzle.
Most of the puzzle consist of interesting fact that I found on https://www.factretriever.com/egypt-facts.|
Home of the ancient Pharaohs, Egypt is a dazzling destination of temples, and tombs that wow all who visit. It's not all historic treasures though, there's vast tracts of desert, superb scuba diving, and the famed Nile River, something for everyone. Beach lovers can head to the Sinai to soak up the sun, while archaeology fans will have a field day in Luxor.
It's a interesting country with their pyramids, beautiful, colorful cities, their rivers, and deserts. Egypt, as a unified country, is believed to have been created about 3,200BCE, though it's known a civilization existed here since the Neolithic period (8,800-4,700BCE), and perhaps as far back as the Paleolithic period.
