King Hammurabi, I have traveled to Egypt to find out what we do not know of the world. So far I have arrived at Egypt and am seeing many things new. I can already tell this is not going to be easy to study.
In comparing Ancient Egypt and modern day Americas, I found a few similarities and differences in their every day lifestyles. Things like religion, government, social class, writing, and their job specializations. It was surprising to me to find out that the ancient Egyptians way of leaving was somewhat like ours. Of course there are heavier differences, but still they were very modern for their times. Also I am in strong belief that we learned many things that are in our culture today from Ancient Egypt.
“Whatever we do or fail to do will influence the course of history” once announced by Arthur Henderson. So you want to be educated about the Nile and ancient Egypt, here are a few facts to get you started. Egypt is a very old, ancient place, the first pharaoh began ruling around 2920 BCE. Almost 5,000 years ago. The famous Nile River, almost everybody knows about, is located in Egypt. The Nile River shaped life in ancient Egypt in several areas of Egyptian life. Three of these ways were transportation and farming, spiritual life, and population and settlement.
The Egyptian, Assyrian, and Persian Empires possess government structure and classification that is both unique and comparable. The Egyptian Empire was formed under a divine institution and part of a universal cosmic order: Kingship. Egypt has a government of absolute monarchy, which allows the leader of Egypt to have unlimited power along with the idea of “Divine Right,” a right to rule given from god. Furthermore, the Egyptians have developed an extraordinary administrative government organization and procedures: the bureaucracy. At the top of the hierarchy was the Pharaoh who had absolute authority over the people. Pharaohs are considered gods; by obeying the will of their pharaohs, subjects believed that they are contributing to the development of a world order. Next to the pharaoh, the official who held the most authority was the vizier, “steward of the whole
Dear Hammurabi Ancient Egypt has a lot of similarities to mesopotamia but it is a lot different.They are great farmers and use the nile river for many things. They used it like you used the tigris and euphrates river.. The Egyptians used it for everything like bathing,Farming,Cooking, and they even used it for a barrier.It was a huge part of the Egyptians life.
Egypt’s geography is very interesting. The Egyptians have mountains to the south of them and they also have two deserts to the east and west of them. The Nile River is used as another boarder, as a port, is full of fish and other good things to eat, and to irrigate crops. The Nile left rich soil for crops after it flooded when the snow melted. The nile not only produced food but papyrus as well. Papyrus was used to make many things.
There is no doubt that the Nile River is the most important river for Egypt. Without this river, Egypt would be an arid, desolate desert. Indeed, if the Nile River weren't existent, Egypt would not have prospered as one of the greatest ancient civilizations. The Nile River stretches across Egypt from north to south and provides the regions around with agricultural land. In the north, the Nile River splits into the two directions, forming a delta. This delta provides fertile soil that is beneficial to the farmers of Egypt. Nearly 99 percent of the country lives within the Nile Delta region or along the Nile River, proving the importance of this wonderful river. Every year, the Nile River floods the land around, bringing extra water and rich
Have you ever wondered how Ancient Egypt helped shape the world today? Ancient Egyptians were a group of folks who were heavily influenced by religion. They feared dying anywhere but Egypt. The Egyptian Empire held a fascinating and very distinctive culture. Being one of the world 's most advanced cultures and creating tons of wealth is what separated them from everybody else. Between the outstanding artwork, teaching methods, and amazing pyramids is what helped their society advance altogether. No other civilization of the ancient world history had such a popular appeal and none as important as human society and its organization. Egyptians have made great steps in shaping the world we all know today, which have made studying their culture and society easier than some previous historical eras.
The people groups in ancient Egyptian were very different than our societies social groups today. Ancient Egyptians were grouped in a hierarchical system with the Pharaoh at the top and farmers and slaves at the bottom. The groups of people nearest to the top of society were the richest and most powerful. The Pharaoh was believed to be a god on earth and had the most power. He was responsible for making laws and keeping order. Ensuring that Egypt was not attacked or invaded by enemies and for keeping the gods happy so that the Nile flooded and there was a good harvest. The Vizier was the Pharaoh's chief advisor
The Nile River is arguably one of the most important water sources in the world and has an extremely rich history dating back thousands of years. Without the Nile, the ancient Egyptian civilization would have never existed. Egypt is basically a whole lot of sand and not much else, except they have the Nile River flowing through it, on it’s way to the Mediterranean sea. The ancient Egyptians lived along the Nile River and it provided them with abundant water, food (fish) and the opportunity to develop agriculture along it’s banks. The Nile River was also used for transportation and trade with other regions because land travel was more difficult than floating on the river. The Ancient Egyptians were at the mercy of the seasonal flooding and
Did you know that the Nile River is the longest river in the world and flows for over 4000 miles? With the last 660 miles of the Nile River flowing through Lower Egypt and the Nile Delta, it played a big role in ancient Egypt from the time of the first pharaoh in 2920 BC through 30 BC. The Nile River shaped Ancient Egypt in at least 3 ways. It provided for their food supply, transportation and trade, and spiritual beliefs.

Location of Egypt was west of the nile and was hot and didn’t have a lot of water. Lived in a desert climate closest to the sahara desert.
