Culture also impacted their writing because they were told to record what happen in their civilization. Culture impacted the architecture because the builders of the pyramids came together as a society to create an architectural achievement developing and construction of the pyramids to bury their pharaohs a queens, about eighty of which still exist today. Culture impacted the innovations of the civilization because Egypt had to make goods with the knowledge of what they had around them. Lastly, culture impacted the achievements of the civilization, if the civilization didn't belief that people had afterlife then they wouldn't have to make pyramids or know how to do mummification.

Achievements

  • Over time the Egyptians pyramids became more elaborate and beautiful. The pyramids were built for the purpose to be tombs. The pyramids were a place that the dead held their bodies and items important to them. A pyramid was easy for thieves to steal things, so wealthy people had their pyramids more complex so that no one could find their way.


  • Mummification was a big part of their achievements. They invented mummification because they thought that there was an afterlife they lived with their god Osiris. In order to live with him their bodies needed to be preserved. Pharaohs still wanted to be wealthy and powerful in their afterlife, so they were buried with their finest things. The wealthier you were the more things you were buried with.


  • Written language was a big part of achievements because it helped them to record history. They wrote on papyrus and clay tablets. They also created the Rosetta stone, the clay tablet that has three different languages written. Their written language was made up of symbols or hieroglyphics. The hieroglyphics helped make trading easier.
