    I thought Egypt was a mixed society. Looks like it was just Arabs.

    Wrong Ancient Egypt wasn’t ‘Arab’

    Arabs didn’t really even have a majority of the population in Egypt untill the Islamic Conquests of 600-700AD, unless of course you count the old Persian Achaemenid Empire as ‘Arab’ but that would be wrong too because they didn’t speak Arabic.

    This documentary about this Pharaoh was talking about Egypt around 1400 BC, so your off about 2,000 years from Arabs controlling Egypt… k thx bai

    @mafiabrett Egypt is Egypt. The people of Egypt are the people of Egypt. The History of Egypt is the Pride of Egypt, where one time Thutmoses was King. Egypt lives…k thnx bai.
    @ Madkeyra It was it still is…Black, brown, white or blue, what matters…if you love Egypt you are Egypt…if it’s your nationality you are Egyptian…too many claim good or ill of Egypt…Some are friendly people…the rest are pathetic and have lots of issues lol

    Ethiopia’s “Nile” was always surrounded by mountains…they never needed it so they never worshiped it. They have rain all through the year, their gift from nature. Just as the nile was barred to them and they were content with the rain, other people decided to follow it and bask in it’s glory under the Sun. Now after 20,000 yrs they claim it their own and would “threaten” to dam the nile flow to “Egypt”? Will be interesting to see…

    @bigcatlife before you judge people go read more
    do you know that about 85% of Egyptians now are from pharaonic origin
    & the rest are from different origins .. & yes if you visited egypt now you will see
    arabic culture .. yes we have arabic culture as we was part of the arabic kingdom but we have different traditions so we are egyptian in origin arabic in culture & thats it .. & look at ancient brazilians , australians or any nation & compare it with now days .. are they the same ???

    @ismailyonlinetv from where did u get these statistics , these statistics are wrong and i will tell u the summary of what happened after the roman conquest on egypt came a cristian missionary (marcous) spread his letter of the cristian religion . most of the egyptians converted to the cristian religion after a time came the arabic conquest to egypt led by (amr ebn el as) he came to spread the islamic religion and he had 3 choices for the poor egyptian either pay tribute ,die or convert islam

    @ismailyonlinetv continuing my summary many died some converted and many flew to other lands then many amounts of people from saudi arabia came and lived in egypt … in the newly captured lands of the arabian empire …. and now in egypt about 17% of the people living in egypt are from phoronic origin , about 12% christian and 5% muslim the other 83% are from saudi arabia and other countries espesially from the other in the arabic empire .
    these r from the history of egypt , check that out .

    I love Ancient Egypt and I’m so glad to find this. Also, am confused by the conversations below, but I’m going to say I’m neutral, until I know what the heck everyone’s arguing over.
    Anyway thanks TEsAtUCSB for uploading! 😀

    @ismailyonlinetv plz dont tell me islam isnt pay or die, because history knows better & i am not talking about the history that arabs who control egypt now wrote it as it would seem to their will. and if these statistics are wrote by arab then they r 80% fake , because arab always make lies to viel the shamful truth of their true history. however these statistics can be true in one condition , that the 85% egyptians from true pharonic origin arent living all in egypt but other countries
