Ancient Egypt Pottery
Pottery was widely produced because the good clay was available in all of the parts in Egypt.Clay was principally used for making vessels that have a matte or just a slightly burnished surface and a color variation, which is the result of the material used and the process of firing.Known as “coarse ware,” this pottery was employed for a variety of vessels and containers with diverse forms and special uses including bowls, dishes, platters, goblets, pots, beer jugs, milk jugs, wine jars, oil containers, and cosmetic vases. In fact many domestic possessions were kept and stored in pottery containers, and the production of these receptacles was so extensive both in chronological and geographical that the study of the development of different styles and pottery has become an essential dating thing for archaeologists.Since potsherd were recycled as a cheap writing material they also provide a different source of evidence in that particular area of study.
Ancient Greece Harvesting
Grain was harvested with a sickle or reaping book.These were like curved knives, and it is sometimes it’s hard to distinguish them from pruning Once cut the crop was transferred to a threshing floor, circular area with hard surface.The crop was threshed by being trampled by draft animals to break grain from husk.The resulting grain and chaff were separated by winnowing.
Ancient Egypt Industry
Craftsmen were nevertheless held in relatively low esteem by the scribes and officials who organized and supervised the work. The Craftsmen did not work as independent agents.The Egyptians who made pottery made two kinds of ware.Brickmaking;the earliest buildings were made of dried reeds.They plastered these structures with clay and help support them.
Ancient Egypt Pryamids
Egyptians would use pyramids (or tombs and graves) as their burial place for people.They believed that the Pyramids and tombs would protect the dead.The body would be wrapped or put in a coffin and then buried.They made Pyramids with stone and sometimes other material.Some graves were marked with a small pile of sand or stones placed on top of the burial.Ancient Egypt Pyramids In the fourth dynasty, three large stone pyramids were built at Giza. The design of these pyramids was based on the pyramids that had been built before. These are the largest and sturdiest pyramids that were ever built in ancient Egypt. The first and largest pyramid was built for the pharaoh Khufu. The second largest pyramid was built for Khufu's son, Khafra. In addition to the usual parts of a pyramid complex, Khafra's pyramid is guarded by a huge sphinx.
Ancient Greece/Egypt jobs
In Ancient Greece there was lots of different jobs that you could do. Leather:They Made leather with animal skins by a series of processes known as tanning.The exact combination of processes depends on the type of leather, the raw hides had to be treated to prevent bacterial decay before they reached the tan yard. The Greeks were big into milling of grain into flour which they used a mill and they would sell and trade it, because they would take the grain and mill it into flour.Wine production gave rise to an export trade throughout the Greek world.Some jobs in Ancient Egypt were farming, making cloth, jewelry, stone working, meals, pottery, wine production, and lots more.Back then people would go from other countries to Egypt and near the Nile river.People did that so they could get money and food because they would work at the little shops near the river and they would get paid to work there.
