Milky Way Seen as Ancient Celestial Deity by Egyptians


We often think of modern humanity as incredibly advanced compared to ancient cultures, and in many ways it is. We have microwaves and televisions, smartphones and motor vehicles. But in their own ways, ancient cultures were far more advanced than we can even conceive of today.

Ancient Egypt, a unified empire that was first established around 3100 BCE, built on early forms of irrigation, using the ebb and flow of the Nile River to plan for crops. They conceived of advanced forms of construction to build the pyramids, and they contributed a tremendous amount to the world’s understanding of medicine, math, writing, the arts, and astronomy.
