Simple research will indicate that humanity’s written history is preceded by the Palaeolithic Era (Early Stone Age) follows by the Neolithic Era (New Stone Age).
In the Palaeolithic Era, humans lived as hunters & gatherers and were generally nomadic. It is in the Neolithic Era that the Agricultural Revolution began between 8,000 and 5,000 BC. The development of agriculture changed the human lifestyle. Earliest evidence of farming seems to indicate its development in the Middle East around 10,000 BC, followed by 7,000 BC in China; about 6,000 BCE in the Indus Valley (now India) & Europe and about 4,000 BC in the Americas. This indicates the Middle East as the place where organised communities first started emerging.
This was the period, humans began systematic husbandry. Agriculture advanced and humans transitioned from a nomadic to a settled lifestyle as farmers in permanent settlements thereby developing communities. Water was an essential variable to the agricultural equation and communities began emerging around river banks. The banks of the Nile. Where ‘community’ on this planet originated.
The Pyramids – as magnificent as an attraction it is – merely serves as a monumental testament of these times pre dating religion. But yet, introducing the concept of god.
Religion began 1,000 years after the pyramids soared the skies of Egypt. Is it any surprise or a subject of wonder that Judaism, Christianity and Islam all flourished in and around Egypt?
Everything above is just a glimpse of what I learnt as a traveller when I visited Egypt in December 2018. And though I had watched countless hours of National Geographic and History channels before my visit to Egypt, I never quiet understood the significance of Egypt the way I did after my visit.
And I have Magdy to thank for this. His role was that of a Historian, Egyptologist, Archeologist, Guide and more than most, a friend. Our time in Egypt and the itinerary he choose was a life altering event for me and my family. The wonder of this process was the way the information was provided to us. It was not preached. It was told to us in order for us to have the ability to process it the way we want to. Magdy has a rare gift.
I am personally one that is difficult to find on social media. But I feel compelled to write this review – long as it may be – as I think I will not be doing my duty if I did not play my part in amplifying Magdy’s skill and capability. To say that he is wonderful and that I recommend him would be a terrible understatement. I think you will miss something if you don’t see Egypt with Magdy.
Now before I close this review, I must say that all the views I express is personal and my interpretation and understanding of what I saw and learnt. I am not an expert of any kind and just a common man trying to make sense of what I see and the above is purely what I understand.
