Struggling with pharaohs and hieroglyphics? Pyramids and mummies giving you a headache? Check out the must-have apps to learn Egyptian history in no time!
Ancient Egyptian history spreads over more than four millennia and, as such, is a massive subject to explore. For many high school students, it can seem overwhelming. Memorizing a list of Egyptian pharaohs will be of no help if their respective periods are not understood from a political as well as cultural perspective. It is wise to start with the basics - learn when were hieroglyphics first discovered, how the conclusion of Egyptian civilization came about, and why were mummies the predominant form of burial. Any attempts at hieroglyphics translation should be left for much later. These and many other facts about Ancient Egypt can be learned with the help of your smartphone or tablet. Being successful in high school is only possible if you truly understand the material. Interactive apps offer a much more exciting alternative to textbooks and can help you paint a vivid picture of life by the old Nile.
Battles, dynastic changes and political turmoil are only a part of the story. What Egypt is most known about is its cultural heritage. If you are studying art history in college, you are bound to spend a good deal of time exploring Egyptian art and the religion and mythology its works are based on. For some students, such a vast topic can pose a challenge. Still, everything from materials used in Egyptian architecture to Ancient Egyptian gods can be easily understood with a bit of help from modern technology. Work smart, not hard. Virtual flashcards, video lessons, and audiobooks should help you memorize and understand the development and greatest cultural achievements of this empire. Ancient Egyptian pharaohs of the New Kingdom, in particular, left an impressive collection of monuments that have not been surpassed to this day. Daily life in Ancient Egypt may not have been rosy (especially not for the slaves) but the relics passed to us continue to inspire awe.
