The Pharaonic Village, the theme park about way of life in ancient Egypt. We will pick you up from your hotel to have an exciting tour to the Pharaonic village where you will set in a
flat bottomed boat with chairs The barge putts slowly around the perimeter of an island fringed by papyrus beds. There is an English commentary on a loudspeaker
which gives a handy summary of Egyptian cosmology as you pass painted plaster statues of Egyptian gods and goddesses. There is even a mini Abu Simbel.Then you get to the good bit: real Egyptians and animals acting out the way of life: ploughing with a wooden plough, sowing the seed and getting sheep to press down the ground, threshing by cow, winnowing, a man operating a shadouf for bringing up water, landowner paying taxes, making honey, building boats of papyrus and a fisherman beating the water. (you usually see this last activity for real on a boat trip from Luxor to Aswan .) There are also tableaux of brick making, mummification, perfume-making, painting and carving, a carpenter and armourer's workshop, potters, grape-traders, spinners and weavers. you also see a demonstration of papyrus making.This is a great excursion for families with children!
