The Cultural Heritage of Egypt: A World Legacy
One of the greatest contributions of archaeology is the affirmation of our common human legacy and the documentation of the contributions of peoples from all parts of the world to a global civilization, a cultural stream that continues to flow, nourished by diverse cultural tributaries and sustained by the efforts of thinkers and artisans in villages and towns scattered all over the world.
In our common journey, we have overcome vast distances and barriers.
Small bands of our ancestors roamed the land eking a living from the bounty of nature.
Their numbers were small, but they were connected by webs of marriages and alliances, spreading innovations and successful patterns of thought and behavior across continents over the millennia.
