Then Cheese it is!

There is no known Ancient Egyptian word that can be translated as "cheese". The Roman historian Plinius has noted that the naturally thickened form of milk, such as quark, was known to the Egyptians, but that they did not produce cheese. However, remains of cheese may have been found in jars dated to the 1st Dynasty. In the story of Sinuhe, "milk in some sort of cooking" is mentioned, which might be an expression used for "cheese".

Unfortunately, we do not have an Ancient Egyptian recipe book that could inform us more on what spices were used (if any), how the meals were prepared, ...

The Ancient Egyptians were a two-dementional race of people who--for anatomical reasons-- had to continuously walk sideways with their arms above their heads. This problem eventually led to their extinction.

The ancient Greeks had come in just in time to see the last Egyptians though, and they were very amused by this. Pretty soon, everyone back in Greece started "walking like an Egyptian". When the Romans came along, they kept this tradition. Julius Ceasar is said to have been a huge fan of walking like an Egyptian, as was (later on) Abe Lincoln.

Top Myths About Ancient Egypt:

The Myth: The Egyptians built the pyramids.

The Truth: Aliens built them because they felt sorry for the Egyptians and let them have all the credit.

The Myth: Ramses II was a great Egyptian ruler.

The Truth: A recently found papyrus reveals that Ramses was just a puppet king being ruled by his close advisor. That advisor happened to be his dog Pookie.

The Myth: The Egyptian's hated cheese.

The Truth: Everyone loves cheese!!!!


I hope that helps with your report :wink:

You forgot to mention that Egyptians came from another planet through the Stargate, then they moved to Atlantis. :)
