Defend Press Freedom

In honor of World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd, we hope you will consider supporting The Media Line this month.
The role of a free press has been at the foundation of democracies around the world for nearly 200 years.
Yet, in many countries, publications are censored and journalists put their lives at risk to report the truth.
A transparent and reliable press covering the important issues of the Middle East is needed more than ever.

The Media Line is proud to assume this responsibility and has over 20 years of success in shaping the role of news reporting in the region. We hope you will support our efforts by making a donation today.

Thank you!

Thank you for confidence in The Media Line.

Plants & flowers played an important role in the lives of the Ancient Egyptians. Join us for this exciting talk on Zoom.

About this Event

The ancient Egyptians were intensely connected to their natural world. As a riverine society surrounded by desert, their seasons revolved agriculture – what they could reap and sow along the narrow band of fertile soil fed by the inundation of the Nile. The cyclical growth and re-growth of plant life was so important to these ancients – it even influenced their ideas around death, rebirth and funerary practices.

Come learn about the beautiful lotus flower, the noble papyrus, cedars they brought from Lebanon, incense trees from Punt – and other legendary flora that the Egyptians glorified in their art, mythology, belief systems and eternal works of architecture.
