In a two-part series, Zahi Hawass gives an outline history of ancient and modern Egypt similar to the one that can be seen at Cairo’s National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation.Part one, linked to above, is a pretty good quick overview of ancient Egyptian history to the rise of Islam. It zips over the Post-Empire, Saite, and Persian Periods very rapidly. It could also say more about Jewish connections to Egyptian history, although it does at least touch on that once.
If you are interested, part two continues from the Islamic period up to the present: Notes on the history of Egypt — II.
