An Egyptian ankh necklace

Although the origin of the ankh symbol is unknown, looking at the evolution of Egyptian hieroglyphic writing, it is likely that the "ankh" was linked to the hieroglyphic sign of the words "life" and "long life".
 

A pendant from ancient Egypt

Three thousand years of ancient Egyptian history seem to hold as many changes as constants. Periods of splendor regularly alternate with periods of more or less pronounced instability.
 
Over time, however, the life of the pharaonic state seems to become more chaotic. The five centuries of prosperity of the New Kingdom were followed by seven centuries of turmoil. Changes of masters and changes of frontiers follow one another until the advent of the Pax Romana (after the suicide of the last of pharaohs: Cleopatra).
