Egypt

Gift of the Nile

The Nile River

The Nile is one of the things that protected Egypt and it's people in it. The Nile protected the people from invaders by how long it is which is 4,258 miles long and I don't think you would want to swim across the Nile also because of the rapids. It also helped in daily thinks like for irrigation to help crops grow. So it did a lot for the people of Egypt they used it for resources.

In Egypt they had a social hierarchy which was like a ranking system. The pharaohs were on top of the ranking because the were like gods to the Egyptians,Next on the list is the nobles they were the people that helped keep Egypt safe from invaders. Then are the scribes and crafts people they were writers and artists, Lastly are servants,farmers,and slaves which was most people in Egypt. The people were ranked based on what they were.

Roseta stone

The Rosetta stone was a writing system the Egyptians used to write. Well that's not really true they used hieroglyphics to write with but the Rosetta stone was another way they wrote they used the system was used by scribes or maybe more than that some other important people used the Rosetta stone to write with because hieroglyphics weren't all the Egyptians used to write with the Rosetta stone was one of the 2 systems they used.

How did they mummify Egyptians

They had no written thing on how they did mummification so the scientists tried to mummify some one and discovered how to mummify some one. They messed with the brain until it was the same as a milkshake then they brought out the liquid out the nose. Then they removed the organs all but the heart. Next they took the liquids out of the body then rapped it in a wrap and buried it in it's tomb.
