This page links to resources exploring the lighter side of the archaeology and ancient history of the Ancient Near East and Egypt.
Additional humour – if not deliberate – may be found by exploring a selection of the Alternative and Fringe websites listed elsewhere in this domain.
The Ancient Egypt Film Site
This well-researched online resource documents the large number of films (over 200) produced since 1900 with ancient Egyptian themes (mummy, biblical, Cleopatra, animated – even erotic!) Includes picture galleries and overviews.
DeMille’s Lost City
Profiles the re-discovery and excavation in Hollywood of the “Lost City” of Cecil B. DeMille, constructed as an elaborate set for the 1923 silent film The Ten Commandments.
The Tomb of the Chihuahua Pharaohs – mainly for kids, though some adults may be bitten!
