Egypt Breaking News

Remembering our Queen!

There were complaints of Hatshepsut coming from the citizens in Egypt. Titmouse II mysteriously disappeared and a women has taken his place. Her name is Hatshepsut. She was known to be a little bit crazy. She dressed like a man, meaning she had man's hair, and a man beard. But one day, Hatshepsut did something Egypt will never forget. She brought many things to Egypt that the people never saw before, like a long, curved yellow thing, which is called a banana.

Ancient Egyptian Schools.

Girls and Boys

Sons usually followed in their dad's footprints. Some kids attended a general village school other kids would attend a special school for a specific career such as a scribe or priest. Girls did not really go to school unless they were rich. Instead of girls going to school, they stayed at home and helped their mother with the house chores. Only boys went to school because people thought that girls were not smart enough to learn and that it would be a waste of time teaching them. Boys were always fought because people thought boys could get educated and needed the education more then girls.

Here is a drawing of ancient school on a wall!

Trading is in the house!!

-Hey, if you have a horse for sale, give it to me. I will give you 5 silver pieces and my daughter who will work for you. But you would have to give her food water and what she needs to survive.


-I got 1 ox, 3 cows, 2 pigs, and a whole lot of work! I will pay you 5 silver a week if you help me take care of my farm. If one of my animals have a baby, then you get to keep it if you give me 7 silver back.

There's a gold tomb in the ground!

We have just discovered a tomb of a king. What is really remarkable, is that this tomb was not robbed! The name of this king is Tutankhamen. By reading the righting on the wall, its says that the only thing he did was say 'yes' to the priests. The Priests asked him to change the religion and the art back to how it was before. He did this because he was a 8 year old boy who did what ever people said. Tutankhamen father, Akenhaten, who changed the Egyptian religion and art, and was not a liked king at all. Akenhaten was so unlikes that when he died, he was not mummified, and all of the heads of the statues of him and his family, were cut off. Sad right. So, besides Tutankhmen saying 'yes', and his tomb that was not robbed, he didm't really do anything else to be remembered.

In the Chariots they Role!

Chariots were used in war. Usually the king would ride in the chariots and lead his army with his chariot. The chariots were led by 1 or 2 horses. The wheel was used to allow the chariot to move at fast pace.

The feather of truth!

The feather of truth was a scale that the Egyptians believed that before the mummified body went to heaven, they would have to make sure the body deserved to go to heaven, if not hell. They would place the heart of the person on one side of the scale, and on the other side was a feather. If the heart weighted more than the feather, than that meant that the body was going to hell, and then the Amenti (a god with the face of a crocodile, front of a leopard and the back of a rhinoceros would eat the heart. If the the heart weighed less than the feather, then the heart would be free and the body would go to heaven.

Boats

Ships were used for transportation to go to different places. Usually it was made with wood and curved at the top of both ends. That helped the boat go faster. There was a cover over the boat because that was were the king sat in the shade for the ride getting fed by the women on the boat.
