Documentary on Predynastic life
"The Department of Pre-Dynastic Monuments, an affiliate of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, will produce a documentary on life of ancient Egyptians who lived in the pre-dynastic era. According to Culture Minister Farouk Hosni, the documentary sheds light on ancient Egyptian's daily life. 'The film is aimed to be a historical reference for specialists in that era,' said Hosni. The film is inspired by the concept of the Pharaonic Village, according to Secretary General of the Supreme Council for Antiquities Zahi Hawass. 'The film will shed light on different means of living of the early man, his hunting tools, how he cultivated the land, and funerary items. The documentary is expected to correct some wrong concepts and beliefs that have spread among historians about that era,' added Hawass. Various copies of the film will be available at archaeological sites, said Khaled Saad, the director of the Department of Pre-Dynastic Monuments".
