The Nile River
The Egypts Gift
Why is the Nile River important?
The Nile River is important because when the floods went down it left thick rich mud (black silt) which was excellent soil to plant seeds in after it had been ploughed. The ancient Egyptians could grow crops only in the mud left behind when the Nile flooded. So they all had fields all along the River Nile.
Would it be possible to farm in Egypt if the Nile River did not exist?
In my opinion I think it would not be possible to farm without the Nile River in Egypt because the crops would died and they wouldn't get to eat what they planted and they would not be able to drink the water and be healthy. They would end up dying of thirst and hunger if the Nile River Valley did not exist.
