    More ways than you might think. For instance, Egyptian art such as many of the statuettes, pioneered a metalworking process we still use today known as Lost Wax Investment Casting. Back then they used beeswax, these days we’ve updated it a bit, but the "technology" still remains the same.

    Investment casting and copper investment use a mold –created with the wax, which is then coated in ceramic, and covered in the metal material. Like I said, back then it was mainly for art and sculpture, but today it’s used to make everything from musical instruments to the individual pats of machines. It’s used to make things that are durable (hence the reason relics from ancient Egypt survive to this day) and easily copied.

    Early Egypt influenced some religious beliefs of today. Early evidence of the fiery aspect of Christendom’s hell is found in the religion of ancient Egypt. See a book called The book of the Dead, New Hyde Park, N.Y with introduction by E.A. Wallis Budge pages 144, 149, 151 and 161.
    Immortality of the soul was also a belief of ancient egypt.

    Hieroglyphics or the system of picture writing were used in ancient Egypt. Today scientist and mathematicians use a form of hieroglyphics to instantly translate the symbolic representations of their work.

    Embalming is a practice today that has its roots in ancient Egypt.
