Ancient Egyptian History and Chronology

Confused by all the period names and dynasties in ancient Egyptian history? You’re not alone. In this video, I explain what the different period names mean and why we use them to talk about ancient Egyptian history.

First, we’ll talk about Manetho’s Egyptian History and the dynasty system that he developed and how it is still used today. Then we’ll get into the modern period names and why we use periods instead of absolute dates. Finally, we’ll look at a few of the famous pharaohs and monuments and where they fall on the timeline of ancient Egypt.
