From the three great civilizations of Rome, Greece and Egypt, it is the splendor and romance Egypt that has inspired imaginations the most.  Though each civilization has its own momuments, ruins, and various works of art that still exist today; the Greek and Roman cultures, customs, and thoughts have been revealed through their own writings.

This is not true of the Egyptians, as their literature is mostly unknown; with the exception of the "Book of the Dead." Most knowledge about the ancient Egyptian culture has been through artifacts, monuments, paintings in their tombs. Appearing on all three were Egyptian hieroglyphs and the key to deciphering them was the Rosetta stone.
