Ancient Egypt for Kids
Stories, Myths, and Legends
Like people everywhere, the ancient Egyptians loved stories. Some of their stories were scary! Some were funny. Some were about animals. Some were warnings! Some were stories about their many (many!) gods.
There was no profession of storyteller in ancient Egypt as there was in some of the other African civilizations. In ancient Egypt, everyone told stories.
Some of the stories below were written in modern times about ancient Egypt, and some are very, very old. (Interactives using flash have been removed.)
