According to Herodotus, the Greek historian, Egypt was ‘the gift of the Nile’, for without her rich waters Egyptian civilization would have been short-lived. The river provided the elements that sustained and influenced an ingenious and vigorous civilization for over three thousand years.
In this beautifully illustrated talk, we travel down the river Nile from the Great Pyramids in Cairo to the temple of Ramses ll in Abu Simbel in Nubia. Wirral based photographer and architect, Brian Anderson, shares his knowledge and stunning images of the friendly and engaging local people, the wildlife, colourful landscapes, stunning architecture and the mystical Egyptian River Gods who ensured the life giving properties of the Nile.

Includes a three course lunch.
