Egypt

Post  Omeara on Sun Sep 28, 2014 10:47 pm

Egypt began to become rich because it started growing between the Nile River and that provided plenty of fertile soil to grow different things. Another interesting fact about Egypt is that it barely gets invaded because there is a lot of natural surroundings that protect it. Egypt is surrounded by the Red Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, deserts, and some rapids. This made it hard for the people that wanted to invade.

Egypt is also a very popular place because of its beautiful and enormous pyramids. These pyramids were actually tombs where the kings and queens were buried along with all their belongings. Close to the dead bodies or mummies, there were jars with the heart, organs, and brain of the queen or king. Egypt is a very interesting place to learn about especially because of its history. Very Happy

Great post Volney! Did you know that Egypt's system of writing, hieroglyphics, emerged around 3000 B.C? The hieroglyphic system of writing used pictures and abstract forms. Hieroglyphics are ideograms, or visual representations of objects or ideas that were familiar to Egyptians. The ancient Egyptians believed that writing was invented by god Thoth. I think that the Egyptian civilization was a very interesting civilization. Great topic! Very Happy

Nice post Volney. I remember learning about this last year. The Egyptians were mainly known for the pyramids that they built. Nobody knows how they built them because the blocks were so big and heavy. Another thing that egyptians were known for is their system of writing. Most importantly, the mummies.
