This map is based around 400 ad. and shows all of the cities of ancient Egypt.
Egypt is known for their astonishing pyramids. Some of the man made pyramids are as big as 450 feet. There are 138 pyramids discovered in Egypt as of 2008.
Social structure Ancient Egypt was ruled by a very small rich upper class who enjoyed power and wealth while the large masses of Egyptian workers and peasants struggled to subsist.
Houses <ul><li>Houses in Ancient Egypt were made out of mud bricks. The average Egyptian home had four rooms—a central room with smaller rooms joined to it. The central room was usually higher than the other rooms so that small openings for air could be placed high in the wall. </li></ul>
Food <ul><li>Because Egypt was very dry, and relied mostly on the Nile river to water the crops, the Egyptians could only grow certain kinds of food. Mainly they grew wheat and barley. The Egyptians made the wheat into bread and into soup and porridge, </li></ul>
Family life <ul><li>Women attend markets and are employed in trade, while men stay at home and do the weaving! Men in Egypt carry loads on their head, women on their shoulder. Women pass water standing up, men sitting down </li></ul>
Marriage <ul><li>The family was broken down into roles that each would play in order for things to run smoothly. The father was the one who would work all day. In smaller households the mother was in charge of all things pertaining to the house. Cooking, cleaning and watching the children were all her responsibilities </li></ul>
childhood <ul><li>Ancient Egyptians owned dolls with real hair knotted into the heads. They played ball and stick games, they ran around naked until puberty and imitated their mothers and fathers at their work at home or in the field. </li></ul>
Education <ul><li>Children in Ancient Egypt stayed with their mothers until the age of four. During these years, a strong respect for their mothers was instilled in the children. At the age of four, education of the boys was taken over by their fathers. Some children at this time attended a general village school while others attended a school designed for a specific career such as a priest or a scribe. Schools taught writing, reading, math, and sports as well as morals and manors </li></ul>
Religion <ul><li>Religion is very important to the ancient Egyptians. The pharaoh was associated with Horus, son of Re the sun god. Later it was believed that at death he became Osiris, or an Osiris, and would help the Egyptians in their afterlife. </li></ul>
clothing <ul><li>The Egyptian climate with its hot summers and mild winters favoured light clothing made from plant fibres. Animal skins were sometimes worn by priests and by pharaohs in their role as first servants of the god. </li></ul>
The Arts <ul><li>The Egyptians made statues, reliefs, paintings, pottery, jewelry, sculptures and coffins. They made art for gods, kings and queens, and for the dead in their tombs. Music found its way into many contexts in Egypt: temples, palaces, workshops, farms, battlefields and the tomb. Music was an integral part of religious worship in ancient Egypt. </li></ul>
Conclusion <ul><li>Ancient Egypt is an extraordinary place with many amazing sights. The pyramids are by far one of the greatest mysteries of the world. The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the 7 wonders of the world. It is unbelievable that humans could have made such a remarkable structure. Thank you for listening to my presentation. </li></ul>
