<ul><li>The awesome thing about the Egyptians is that their civilization lasted over 3000 years (that is a really long……time) </li></ul><ul><li>The Egyptians civilizations lasted so long that their monuments were ancient even in Greek and Roman time (wow! Now that’s awesome!) </li></ul>Egypt factfile
<ul><li>the most awesome sight that you can see in Egypt is the pyramids but you can’t see the people who built them. </li></ul><ul><li>before Egypt was a country, small villages grew on the banks of the river Nile .Each village had a chief and the most powerful chiefs took over other villages from neighbouring chiefs. They became kings of small kingdoms by the Nile. Again, the most powerful would conquer neighbors' and became even more powerful. In the end there were just two awesome chiefs–the king of upper Egypt with his white crown and the king of lower Egypt with his red crown . </li></ul>Fascinating Pharaohs... the mystery of the kings..
The birth of Egypt as a country <ul><li>Villages with chiefs changed into countries with kings in a matter of 200 years. </li></ul><ul><li>How did this change happened so quickly while other countries needed a longer period of time? Some historians think the new leaders were an awesomely clever group of people from outside Egypt–conquerors in fact. </li></ul>
<ul><li>One leading historian says the early kings came from the East. </li></ul><ul><li>A leading hysteric says they must have come from another planet! (there is proof that the early kings were taller and had much larger heads than the peasants of Egypt) </li></ul><ul><li>Their skeletons and their graves have been found but their flying saucer has not. Still, no one is certain……so make up your own mind. In any case, wherever they came from, it was their even more awesome descendants who built the pyramids. </li></ul>Fun facts of Egypt's early kings! amazing!
As a king, here are some of your duties….. Your royal role.....
<ul><li>Are you fit? The king has to prove his fitness by running around a fixed course. This is usually held after the king has ruled for 30 years. This trail is performed during the Heb-sed festival. </li></ul>The Heb-sed festival Imagine your course is the Neil. And u have to run past pyramids…
<ul><li>Remember you are not just a king ; you are also a god. Every morning the king has to make offerings to the other gods. This is to ask the sun to rise. If you don’t, then the sun won’t rise and the world will end! </li></ul><ul><li>(If you are a bit lazy, don’t worry. the priests would sometimes do it for you!) </li></ul>Religious leaders Wow! Making offerings to the sun to rise is super COOL!
<ul><li>As a king, u have other roles besides running the Heb-sed festival and being a religious leader; you have to be a …… </li></ul><ul><li>Government leader </li></ul><ul><li>You must have a royal nickname </li></ul><ul><li>and also….. </li></ul><ul><li>An awesome army leader! </li></ul>Now, would you want to be king ? A king's other roles...
