Government in Ancient Egypt
(Yeah, Ancient Egypt had a government!)
Ancient Egypt's laws, or legal system, was based on common sense. They also had a court system. There were higher and lower court. The Higher court was made up of the Pharaoh and his assigned Vizier. The lower court was made up of a group of elders in each town. If you didn't like the decision made in lower court, you could come up to the vizier in higher court. But, you could also get into trouble if your case was not serious.
