The Rise of Egypt

Post  Roberta2000 on Thu Sep 25, 2014 6:25 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.
