It took just three thousand years for the Egyptian civilisation to come into being, reach its peak and fall into decline.
It did, nevertheless, succeed in preserving much of its ancient splendour and history, handed down through its monuments, knowledge and men. Throughout the history of Egypt, many different pharaohs rose to the throne. Many left no real trace of their existence, some achieved great feats, few left proof of truly exceptional works, and only one succeeded in tasks worthy of a God: Ramses II. Uncover the secrets of Pharaoh Ramses II, also known as Ramses The Great, as we explore his life to provide a better understanding of all the rulers of ancient Egypt.
