This paper discusses how few ancient civilizations have given so much as have the ancient Egyptians. Like their Greek counterparts, the Egyptians' innovations in the areas of mathematics, architectural design, mythology, literature (albeit in the Egyptian case, hieroglyphics) and government were seized upon as exemplars by later empires in both the Western and Middle Eastern worlds. The paper examines a certain aspect of ancient (and still fairly inscrutable) Egyptian society known as the Sed Festival.
