What Google Doc Font should I use for my Egyptian Project?

There are literally hundreds of font styles to choose from for a Google Doc. If I was creating a project about Egypt there are two fonts which I might use for creating titles and headings. The font styles I like are Algerian and Caesar.  

You can learn about installing Google Doc Fonts from the following Google Doc Help Center Article: Edit and format a document. Please pay special attention to the "Format your Font" section.
