  1. 1. Egypt By Jeanann
  2. 2. water <ul><li>The Nile R. created a long fertile valley that ended in a marshy delta by the Mediterranean Sea. </li></ul><ul><li>Most everything else was desert which gave you fresh food and water. </li></ul><ul><li>The river was great for transportation. </li></ul>
  3. 3. topography <ul><li>The deserts were hot and dry so most people avoided them. </li></ul><ul><li>The people formed a natural barrier so invaders didn’t want to cross them. </li></ul>
  4. 4. vegetation <ul><li>The lack of water in the deserts made them useless for farming, but the Nile provided natural irrigation and fertilization. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Geography <ul><li>There was the Old Kingdom, Middle Kingdom, and the New Kingdom. </li></ul><ul><li>It seldom rains in Egypt, and without the annual flooding of the Nile River the land would be pure desert. </li></ul><ul><li>Every year on almost the exactly the same date, July 15, the river would begin to rise- up to at least 30 feet in the Aswan. That is less than in the Delta. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Pharaohs <ul><li>The leaders. </li></ul><ul><li>Built tombs for them selves for when they would die, but most wished the would live forever. </li></ul><ul><li>They would take all of their most valuable into the tomb so they could use them in the afterlife. </li></ul><ul><li>Pharaoh Hatshepsut was the first woman to become a pharaoh. </li></ul><ul><li>People believed that the falcon brought power to the pharaohs. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Gods <ul><li>They lived in the temples. </li></ul><ul><li>All the temples were dedicated to the gods. </li></ul><ul><li>Some rituals were performed for the gods in the temples to respect and show curtsey to the gods. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Daily life <ul><li>Artisans were crafts people. </li></ul><ul><li>Peasants did the farm work. They were at the bottom of the social pyramid. </li></ul><ul><li>Priests were really respected and powerful in the Egyptian society. The priests were at the top of the pyramid next to the pharaoh. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Peasants <ul><li>They were the largest social class. </li></ul><ul><li>Peasants worked the land, providing Egypt with a steady food supply. </li></ul><ul><li>When they weren’t farming, they worked on the Pharaoh’s massive building projects. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Artisans <ul><li>They occupied the next layer of the social pyramid. </li></ul><ul><li>This group included crafts people like carpenters, metal-workers, painters, sculptors, and stone carvers. </li></ul><ul><li>Artisans were highly skilled. </li></ul><ul><li>They had little social status. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Food <ul><li>Cooks roasted ducks, geese, pigeons, quail, antelope, wild sheep, and goats. </li></ul><ul><li>Dishes were piled high with figs, dates, grapes, and coconuts. </li></ul><ul><li>Bread, cakes, honey, and plenty of beer and wine completed the meal. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Education <ul><li>Writing was really important in Egypt. </li></ul><ul><li>The staff who looked after the Army had to know how to read and write and also be able to calculate. </li></ul><ul><li>Even the princess had to be taught how to read and write. </li></ul>
