The Egyptians made a clock by using water and the sun. Water clocks were made by timekeepers that observe bodies of water. They made two stone buckets with a tiny hole in one bucket, and then the bucket under it would collect the water. Their moving shadows formed a sundial, and they created a device.
The device divided the sunlight. The elements of the clock are the sky, candles, oil lamps, reservoirs, hour glasses, and small stone or metal mazes filled with incense that would burn a certain place. Their clocks were not like modern day clocks, but they were still able to know what time it was to do certain things that were important.
Another thing that is currently used is paper. The only difference is now it is made with trees and back then it was made with papyrus. Soon after paper was made, the Egyptians also created ink. The ink was made out of dye and made more colors.
Using a specific type of plant, they were able to create sandals, mats, and other materials. Soon, the Egyptians could make scrolls to keep religious documents. They kept the papyrus guarded and secret. It played a great role in the ancient Egyptian life.
When there were no canals available ships had to be built. The materials they used for boats where papyrus reeds and evolved to wood. It took them 17 days to build one ship, it took a lot of materials and it probably was a large process. They use the ships for transportation,soon they needed bigger ships for bigger transportation.
Ancient Egypt technology has influenced modern America in many ways such as 365 day calendar/time, the way they used papyrus, and the way they have influenced ships and boats for today. 365 day calendar has influenced us by helping us tell time and able to know what day it is, to know what events you have ahead of time.
