Egyptology is the study of Ancient Egypt and Egyptian antiquities and is a regional and thematic branch of the larger disciplines of ancient history and archaeology.
Egyptology investigates the range of Ancient Egyptian cultures (language, literature, history, religion, art, economics, and ethics) from the 5th millennium BC up to the end of Pagan religion in the 4th century AD.

 History of Ancient Egypt and Egyptian Pyramids
The history of ancient Egypt proper starts with Egypt as a unified state, which occurred sometime around 3000 BC, though archaeological evidence indicates a developed Egyptian society may have existed for a much longer period.
The pyramids of Egypt, some of which are among the largest man-made constructions ever conceived, constitute one of the most potent and enduring symbols of Ancient Egyptian civilization.

The last classic history of ancient Egypt written by a British Egyptologist was Gardiner’s Egypt of the Pharaohs, which was published nearly forty years ago, in 1961 (the year I was born).
The core of Gardiner’s history is a corpus of ancient texts, many of which were composed for very specific reasons that had nothing to do with the writing of ‘history’, but Gardiner moulds them into a convincing narrative, rarely taking time to examine their archaeological or cultural contexts.
I also wanted a history that covered both political and cultural change — something that combined the vividness of the texts (the words of real individuals speaking about their time) with the nitty-gritty information about daily life and work that can be extracted from excavation reports.

The Predynastic Period of Egypt (prior to 3100 BC) is traditionally the period between the Early Neolithic and the beginning of the Pharaonic monarchy beginning with king Narmer.
Most archaeological sites in Egypt have been excavated only in Upper Egypt, because the silt of the Nile River was more heavily deposited at the delta region, and most delta sites from the predynastic period have since been totally buried.
From the Tasian period onward, it appears that Upper Egypt was influenced strongly by the culture of Lower Egypt.
