Ancient Egyptian Geography,By Daniel Gonzalez
Ancient Egypt was located in fertile valley of the Nile river. The ancient kingdom was located on the Nile on northeastern of Africa. Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia, Sudan are also located in northeastern Africa today but they went there when the ancient kingdom was there.
The anent people of Egypt grow and harvest crops in many different ways. they dug the ground up with wooden hoe scatters seeds on the wet soil and waited to harvest them. they had grain, barley, vegetables and flax. they cut the grain with a sharp-toothed flint sickle. they also made beer with another kind of wheat.
It is on the modern city of Egypt near the Mediterranean sea.
It is on the lower reaches of the Nile river. The civilization collapsed around the year of 3150 BC. Egypt was larger back then. many people think it is part of the Sahara desert but its not.
The Nile river ran through the upper part of Egypt to the lower part of Egypt. it made it easier for them to trivial and grow crops. they could easy travel by boat to other villages and temples because there were near the Nile river. the farmers farmed near the Nile river so they could easily get some water for there crops.
The Nile river was there geography success. the reason is because the Nile provided water for their crops witch helped them a lot and not only that but the river also mad it easy for them to travel by boat. the Nile also goes through Egypt but not all of it. the river also passes villages and fields.
the ancient people of Egypt were lucky were they lived because they had a lot of resources and a large river. the Nile is probably why they are lucky. it is a large river that runs mostly thorough Africa. They farmed a lot of crops and the river provided water for them because most of Egypt was dry.
