Imhotep: The Worlds First Great Engineer & Astronomer

Imhotep was an Egyptian polymath(A person that is an expert in many areas of learning) who besides, Amenhotep is the only Egyptian to become completely deified. Imhotep would also be considered the god of science, medicine, and architecture.

Imhotep was the first mega engineer, building the popular step pyramid for King Djoser. He was also a master architect, writing an entire encyclopedia on architecture.

He held the title “Chief of the Astronomers” and was considered the worlds first great astronomer. The life and times of Imhotep is an inspiring and fact-based story that should be taught in every school in America.

Unfortunately, the education system is so whitewashed (Westernized) that the greatness of these type of individuals are overlooked far too often.
