The ancient Egyptians have made some of our biggest and longest lasting monuments in the whole WORLD. Most people think of the Pyramids when they dig in their minds for background information of Egypt. But truthfully, they are partially correct in my book; well never mind I don't have a book. You know that big Washington Monument at our capital? Well that monument was designed in mind of the Obelisks in Egypt. Obelisks (another Egyptian monument) are upright stones with a point on the top. They were also a focal point of worship in temples but their exact purpose is still not known. To wrap it up, Egyptians have made some of the biggest influences around the world with their big and spectacular monuments.
