This was an incredibly detailed course that provided an in-depth and interesting view of ancient Egypt. I would highly recommend this as an essential course for those interested in Egypt's history.
I really enjoyed the history of Ancient Egypt. I have viewed the treasures of Tutankhamun twice. This class gave me a more in depth view of the culture and the art of Ancient Egypt. Thank you.

The presentations were interesting but why doe every segment include almost three minutes of credits? Most annoying. Credits once in the course are expected, maybe once a week but every segment??? I'll think twice about subscribing to a U Penn course again

A dull tone, and over-reliance on the artefacts of the Penn museum, as if there were no other museums for egyptology in the world, are a few of the issues within this introduction course.

Detailed information, but the lectures were not very interesting to listen to.

The sound quality isn't very good.

Курс не соответствует названию. При упоминании Чудес Древнего Египта больше представляются храмы Карнака, гробница Нефертари. В текстах под видео полно ошибок. Вместо Тутмоса IV - Моисей, Пенн музей стал Пейн музей.

I did not understang how videos were cut each week. Why 10 videos of 5 to 10 minutes with half the time for photographic credits (!!!!) where all could be said in one 30 minutes video ? Students can concentrate for 30 minutes in a row.
Course was easy, sometimes even light. As long as you like Ancient Egypt, you already know, for example, everything that is said in week 6 regarding Tut's tomb discovery.
I have no doubt that Dr Silverman is an extremely capable professionnal but he is not an the best speaker for a course : the tone is grim and lacks some passion.
