History of Egypt
How the Old Kingdom Was Born
About Pharaoh Khafre's Father
Khufu was the father of Pharaoh Khafre, who is currently reigning. Khufu was the second pharaoh of the 4th dynasty of the Old Kingdom. Pharaoh Khufu was the son of Pharaoh Sneferu. The largest of the two Great Pyramids of Giza was built in honor of Pharaoh Khufu. Most of the documents about Pharaoh Khufu were written by Egyptian and Greek historians at around 300 B.C.
Death, Afterlife, and Mummification
Wealthy Egyptians buried their dead in stone tombs and, as an effect of that, mummification was born. Mummification is a process in which you remove the internal organs of the body, wrap the body in cloth, and then place the body into a rectangular stone sarcophagus or wooden coffin. It is believed that if you are mummified you could live on in the afterlife, which is even better than real life.
War news: we have none because everyone fears us so much, because our army is so amazing. Our military works hard every single day to protect us from any evil intruders. Our military is stronger than any other in the world. We have never been conquered by another empire since the Old Kingdom was born. It is a brutal job, but they would do anything to protect their kingdom.
During the old kingdom many of the Egyptian soldiers had many weapons such as: shields, spears, cudgels, maces, daggers, bows and arrows. The main weapons the soldiers used was the bow and arrow, it is deadly close and far range, much better than melee weapons( maces, daggers, swords). The spear is also a great weapon for far range in a battle except there is one problem you only get one to throw and it is a lot harder to kill someone with it. You can use a spear for close range. Some soldiers actually use a chariot to run over the enemy but I would not put that as a weapon because you would probably be killed before hitting anyone. soldiers mainly used chariots for getting onto the battlefield and having a less chance of getting an arrow
through your stomach.
During the old kingdoms the Egyptians use to traded with other countries. The Sinai desert was important for its copper and gemstone mines. During the Late Period much of Egyptian trade was in the hands of Phoenicians and Greeks, who had settled in the Delta. The Egyptian attempts at ruling Libya were influenced by the profits to be made from the European trade with Africa. Egypt had only partial success in controlling the flow of goods from Africa to Europe and the Near East. The cheapest and fastest way of transporting merchandise was by ship, despite the cataracts of the Nile and the storms on the Mediterranean and Red Sea and the difficulty and expense of keeping the canal connecting the Nile and the Red Sea in good repair.

Demand for Scribes
The newest writing system has been extremely successful, all of the merchants wants signs, so the demand for scribes is now skyrocketing. Everyone wants a scribe. It is a very high paying job! All you need to do is to pay a fee to learn how to read and write. It is expensive, but it is a great investment. Once you become a scribe, you'll be so rich, you won't know what to do with all of your money!
Because our glorious Nile river is constantly cutting through various rock formations, quarries with countless amounts of gold and other metals are uncovered close to the rivers. That is why our Egyptian empire is so powerful and rich, because we have so many valuable and rare metals.
