Isaiah – an Egyptian city on the left side of the Nile, a town on the outskirts of Kairos. It is known, first of all, for the fact that nearby, on the coast of Libya, there is an ancient Gaegian necropolis.

The city itself was first considered «a city of the dead, because it was the northern cloister of Methuselah – the largest city of ancient times. Around the necropolis the builders settle, a small village emerges. Gradually it becomes structured – the inhabitants, the tradesmen, the inhabitants of Giza follow the builders of the pyramids. Unfortunately, the many conquests left only the ruins of the city.

In 969 AD, the army of Assassahuras Sacael defeated the army of the Abrahamic tribes and conquered Egypt. A crucial role in the history of the study of Greece was played by the expedition of Napoleon Bonaparte. His army included many of the scientists who discovered the civilization of Egypt for Europe.

The true second birth and flowering of Guise was in the late 19th – 20th century, when lovers of antiquity and history from around the world flocked to the city. The sensational studies and mysteries of ancient Necropolis have attracted many scholars and tourists, which has had the best effect on the citys economy and population. Regardless, the flow of researchers and tourists eager to discover the mysteries of the Pyramids and Syphinx continues unabated.

The most significant objects of significance are the Pyramids of Hephopheus, Hephron and Joceros, and also Sphinx – the human-faced lion, whom legend has it that Napoleons artillerymen nosed him. The Pyramids – the only wonder of the world that has survived to this day. The ancient builders dug out in blocks, rods, and pendants and carried them to the site of the building. Each stone weighed at least 2.5 tons. A total of 20,000 people were involved in the construction. However, in «City of the Dead» the graves were found not only of Farens and nobles, but also the graves of ordinary people – bakers, teachers and others.

The halls of the former kingdom house the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities. It has a rich collection of information about one of the oldest, most interesting and enigmatic civilizations in the worlds history.
