Egypt lies Northeast in the African continent, its history goes back to Biblical times; with Pharaohs fighting for land in the fertile Nile River! There are many, year old Monuments here:  Including: the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx; the Karnak temple, with its infamous hieroglyphics and the Valley of the Kings Tombs! The capital is Cairo and has a number of landmarks; like the Egyptian Museum, with many artifacts found in the Tombs of the Pharaoh's! They have their own derivative of the Pound, from British rule- the Egyptian Pound!
