Ancient Egpyt and the Afterlife

Post date: Oct 20, 2012 12:55:43 AM

As you are starting to see from your reading in The Golden Goblet and other class activities, the idea of an afterlife was very important in Ancient Egypt. Many historians and archaeologists even believe that crime in Ancient Egypt was very low because people tried to live good lives to get to the afterlife.

To better understand these beliefs, this week's warm-up assignment was some reading and a companion worksheet on beliefs in the afterlife in Ancient Egypt and how they connect to our beliefs today. This assignment is valuable to your understanding of the Ancient Egyptian way of life. If you did not finish during class today, please take the time to read the content below and complete the worksheet found here (also posted below.)
