The Ancient Egyptians Who Lived And Died In Pompeii | Egyptian Secrets At Pompeii | Absolute History

  • čas přidán 9. 01. 2024
  • Discover the history & treasures of ancient Egyptians who lived in Pompeii in the shadow of mount Vesuvius. Under Roman rule by the 30BC, Egypt began transmitting spoils of war and new materials such as glass, papyrus, minerals and ores to Rome. This conquest and influx of goods sparked a new fascination with ancient Egyptian culture with Romans now incorporating Egyptian art, architecture and religion into their own lives.

    I was in Pompeji once and had to laugh at a house entrance's floor mosaik : "cave canem" (beware of the dog)... humans were the same back then like today :D

      The more things change, the more they stay the same

      Or change...went from paper bags for groceries to plastic bags and now, either paper bags or pricey reusable ones...glass milk bottles to plastic, and some companies are bringing back glass (or a more "eco friendly" plastic)

    Just read about the Etruscans role in building Pompeii… so interesting to get another point of view added with this video.

    Fun little tidbit. In Greek mythology. When Typhon attacked Mount Olympus. A number of the gods ended up fleeing to Egypt. Perhaps a case of correlation or causation? Who are who's to say!?

    Great doc, I really like the presenter. But anyone else find the music distracting? Settle down, horn section.

    Interesting use of eye liner. With long hair too hmm.

    You didn't mention slavery. Could some of the Egyptian objects come from slaves who bought their freedom and then brought in objects from their homeland? Or even set up trading companies with Egypt?

    The CRW videos I've seen are not that interesting. It's more like a guided tour of seemingly random artifacts that are tied by location. Instead, the narration needs to tell a central story (e.g. a rivalry, a cataclysm, an uprising, a tyrant). Stories have characters that we can relate to or despise. He's certainly got the enthusiasm and the knowledge. But without a recurring theme, it's really hard to learn anything (unless you have photographic memory); every name is heard once, then forgotten.

    Jude 1:7 “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

    Sorry, I just can’t with this guy. His breathy delivery of dialogue is creepy. His facts are wrong and he looks like a weird Vegas magician.

      Have to agree with you, not sure if this is an attempt as a documentary or something else. Was really keen on hearing about the Egyptian element more.

    • @TBSxDRUMS
      @TBSxDRUMS Před měsícem +2

      Can you give more perspective as to the factual element you mention? The documentary seemed mostly to be speculation based on bits of available evidence rather than delivering solid, undisputable facts everyone already knows. More like an exploration of interesting possibilities that are neither proven nor disproven, which I think is a particular genre of documentary. Then again, I did watch this late last night while tired, so perhaps I missed something (and, alas, I am neither an Egyptologist nor an expert on Pompeii...) As for the presenter, that's merely subjective as I found the delivery and aesthetic to be perfectly fine. I thought the look was a nice nod to ancient cosmetics like kohl and Mesdemet! I am, however, concerned about objective facts!
