The Rise of Egypt

Post  Roberta2000 on Thu Sep 25, 2014 6:22 pm

The civilization of Egypt emerged along the Nile River. The Nile River played an important role in Egyptian civilization. The split that forms a triangular territory (next to the Mediterranean Sea) is called a delta. The Nile Delta region is called Lower Egypt, and the other region is called Upper Egypt. Egypt, like Mesopotamia, also had natural barriers such as the desert to the West and East, the Red Sea to the East, rapids on the Southern part of the Nile, and the Mediterranean Sea to the North.
In the Egyptian civilization there were three periods- the old kingdom (2700B.C-2200B.C), the Middle kingdom (2000B.C-1600B.C), and the New kingdom (1550B.C-1069B.C). Egypt’s history began around 3100B.C when King Menes united Upper and Lower Egypt into a single kingdom. Menes created the first royal dynasty. From then on, Egyptian rulers would wear the double crown, indicating the unity of all Egypt.

Interesting post. Did you know that historians were amazed of how the egyptians made the pyramids so straight and precise. The ancient egyptians were the first civilizations to use geometry. There a few fun facts for you.

This topic is pretty interesting. as far as I know, Egypt is the only country with natural barriers, and I imagine it was a very peaceful place because they didn't have to worry about getting attacked; they were very protected.

Roberta that was an interesting post, which you said, but you didn't mention that the two major tributaries that separate the Nile River are called the White Nile and the Blue Nile. You might have said that the White Nile is where the north water passes through and the Blue Nile is where the source of water and fertile soil is. Another you could have mentioned is that the White Nile is longer than the Blue Nile and it stretches to the Great Lakes but in Africa. An important fact you had to put in was that the two tributaries meet at the capital of Khartoum, but it was good what you wrote. Very Happy

Interesting post on the Rise of Egypt. It was a very interesting topic that we learned in history class. I've learned a lot about Egypt and I also know that they have a lot to do with the math that we study today. Great Job!! Very Happy

Egyptian History

Post  Ophirkes on Sun Sep 28, 2014 1:17 pm

Well done on the description and all the precise work! Did you know that since King Menes united the two parts of Egypt together, the crown became different? The Upper part of Egypt was a white crown that looked like an upside down cone, and the Lower part of Egypt had a red crown that looked like a chair. To show the unity, King Menes made a red and white crown that had the exact same “image” and showed that now, Egypt was a whole. In order to get Egypt united, a war took place, obviously.
