I first got interested in Ancient Egypt in 5th grade. Because i wanted to know who was the Pharaoh that freed Joseph. i got hooked on Ancient Egypt when i read The Lost Queen of Egypt in 7th grade.

When I was about 6 I read the comics version of a novel which was an ancient Egyptian mystery, with a fantasy twist (sounds bad enough, but remember, I was 6 at the time Smile ) and it made me interested in Egypt.

Oh wow...it's been a while, lemme think, when I first got into ancient egypt...I think it was when I was around 4 or 5, we had neighbors that were from Egypt, and i was friends with their kiddies ( i think they had 3 sons and a daughter), anyways I remember hanging out with them a lot, we used to visit each other's houses. They gave us a papyrus painting of Tutankhamun's funerary mask, and i was curious, and have been hooked on ancient egypt since.

P.S. I think i still have that papyrus painting somewhere...i'm gonna go find it later...he he....

I got into Ancient Egypt in the fifth or sixth grade when I remember i watched a movie on i think it was Tutankhamun on the history channel or something like that and i was so amazed by how people lived so long ago that i instantly liked it.

First I wanted to become a archeologist, but around were I live theres only digs from Vikings etc. Nothing that really intrests me. Then a saw a documentary on Egypt, one of those general ones. Since then I've been totaly sold. But it's really just this last year/years wich I have started "investegating" myself. After we read on ancient egypt in my culturehistory class. Then I really wanted to learn more (everything Very Happy ). And now my plan is to study egyptology and archeology.

When I was 9 years old, I read a bok by Halliburton--Richard Halliburton was a 120's Indie Jones-type character--and I thought exploring and finding treasure sounded soooo cool! Since then, of course, I have learned that Egyptology is vastly different than a treasure-hunt!
I remember--I think it was the 7th grade--I built a model of the Great Pyramid for a project--using sugar cubes! The ants LOVED it! LOL

From the age of about three my grandmother used to take me to the British Museum every other weekend. We spent hours there, also visiting the other Museums. She loves Egypt, but a far more romanticised idea of it. We went to Egypt when I was nine and since then we keep going back, sparking even more interest every time. Since the day I first looked into the face of Ramses II in the Cairo Museum I knew that Egypt was mt obsession, and i haven't looked back since!

Until recently, I've only really been interested in Ancient Greece and Rome (7th form classics and art history rocked!!!) but after reading Karen Essex' Kleopatra and Pharoah I realized that OH MY GOODNESS, ANCIENT EGYPT IS PRETTY DARN KOOL TOO!
