Not really. The progs I have seen were interesting about the Alexandria
stuff, but IIRC, it was mainly the final dynasties of the Egyptian's who
were really inbred Greeks (The Ptolemy's).
The pyramids are worth the risk. Even learning hieroglyphs for a laugh!
Any way I think the Egyptian gvt has that place sealed tight now. Got to
think of the tourist dollars!
BTW can't recall who objected to my saying "I can't think of a Muslim
country I would like to live in", it is true, I can't. It is not the same as
visiting a Muslim country of which there are a few I would love to.....if I
had the cash.
