I am looking into popular views on ancient egypt, in particular looking for the misconceptions people have about this ancient civilisation. What do u think life was about to the egyptians? your views would be greatly appreciated.

I think that the biggest false impression that people have is that this was a joyless culture obsessed with death. If you read their writings it becomes obvious that this was a people who loved life and wanted to continue it into the next world in much the same form as it was lived on the banks of the Nile. They went to great extents to try and insure that this would happen.

I think they were a highly religious people, and that their religion reflected a close connection to nature reflected in the nature of their writing. Their hieroglyphs are like snapshots of nature if you will, unlike ours that is more of a architectural character design in our letters. They were a harmonious people, too since their civilization was and is to this day a wonder.
