Nobles are people from rich and powerful families. The third on the social hierarchy is scribes and craftspeople. Scribes are people who learned to read and write and craftsmen are people who built many things. On the bottom of the social hierarchy is farmers, servants, and slaves. Farmers are people who do work, servants are people who do work for other people , and slaves also are people who do work for other people. The Egyptians believed that a well organized society would keep their kingdom strong.

How Ancient Mesopotamia was similar and different from Ancient Egypt
Egypt was similar to Mesopotamia because they both where really involved with religion. They both also accomplished many things. The Egyptians made the pyramids and the Mesopotamians created the first system of writing. They are also similar because their social hierarchy was similar. Another reason they are similar because they had many gods. They are different because the Egyptians built pyramids and the Mesopotamians didn't.
