In the late twentieth century, literary critics, artists, feminists, classicists, postcolonial scholars, social historians, Afrocentrists, archaeologists, Egyptologists, Middle Eastern scholars, and purveyors of pop culture engaged in lively debates about the place of Egypt in western history and culture. They spilled rivers of ink questioning the legitimacy of inherited ideas and restyling the ways people think about an ancient civilization. Over five thousand years after the beginning of the First Dynasty, westerners continue shape their identities by reimagining the past. New developments, such as the recent discovery of the mummy of a great female ruler, spark discussions that show how cultural memory continues to evolve.
