Description:
The most notable quality of the Egyptian civilization is its permanent character. Instead of lasting only a few hundred years, it endures for thousands ; and whereas in other countries the entire evolution of the civilization can be traced from its primitive beginnings, through infancy, maturity, old age and death, in Egypt there appears to be no beginning, the civilization apparently starts mature ; and although within it there are minor cycles of decline and renaissance, still the initial starting-point has not been found.
