STABLE OF FOOD SUPPLY

THE EGYPTIANS LIVED NEAR THE NILE RIVER WHAT THEY WOULD BASICALLY EAT WAS FISH AND HUNT ANIMALS THAT WOULD LINGERING AROUND TO EAT SOME GRASS.THEY HAD RICH FARMLAND WHICH WAS PERFECT FOR GROWING CROPS SUCH AS WHEAT BARELY AND PAPYRUS PLANTS.THEY WOULD ALSO FIND AND EAT GEESE DUCKS HIPPOS CROCODILES GIRAFFES AND ORSTRICHES THAT ALSO BE LINGERING AROUND SO THAT IS THE STABLE OF FOOD SUPPLY.

GOVERNMENT

THE ANCIENT GOVERNMENT WAS RULED BY A PHARAOH.THE AVERAGE PERSON HAD NO SAY IN THE GOVERNMENT.THE PHARAOH RAMESESLL RULED FOR ABOUT 1290 TO 1224 B.C.E.PHARAOH KHUFU DURING THE OLD KINGDOM SET UP A STRONG CENTRAL GOVERNMENT.PHARAOH SENUSRET DURING THE MIDDLE KINGDOM HE DID EGYPTIAN ART.PHARAOH HATSHEPSUT WAS THE FIRST FEMALE PHARAOH.THE SCRIBES WERE ALSO VERY IMPORTANT TO THE GOVERNMENT BECAUSE THEY WOULD BE INCHARGE OF KEEPING TRACK OF THE FINACES.ALSO TO RECORD ALL OF THE TAXES AND CENUSES.

IN ANCIENT EGYPT THEY HAD A SOCIAL PYRAMID OF THE PEOPLE THAT WERE SUCCESSFUL AND THE PEOPLE THAT WERE NOT SO MUCH VERY SUCCESSFUL LIKE THE PEOPLE THAT WERE AT THE TOP WOULD BE THE KINGS AND THE PEOPLE AT THE BOTTOM WOULD BE LIKE SLAVES.IT WENT IN ORDER A PHARAOH IS THE SUPREME LEADER THE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS WOULD BE SECOND THEY CARRIED OUT ORDERS FROM THE PHARAOH NEXT WERE THE PRIESTS THEY WERE POWERFUL TO BECAUSE EVERYONE HAD THE RELIGIOUS BELIEF IN THEM NEXT WOULD BE THE SCRIBES THEY RECORDED THE GOVERNMENT AND THE RELIGIOUS BELIFS.THE OTHER TWO ARE THE ARTISIANS AND THE PEASENTS THE ARTISANS WOULD CRAFT OR CARPEN. THE PEASENTS WOUULD KEEP THE STEADY FOOD SUPPLY.

RELIGION BELIEFS

THE EGYPITIONS BELIEVED IN GODS AND THAT THEIR WAS AN AFTER LIFE.SO WHEN SOMEONE DIED THEY PUT A LOT OF LITTLE COOL TOYS AND FOOD AND ANCIENT DRAWINGS IN THEIR COFINS. THEY ALSO BELIEVED IN GREAT GODS THEY WOULD PRAY FOR THEM EVERY DAY BASICALLY. THE EGYPITIONS THOUGHT THAT THEIR WOULD BE AN AFTERLIFE AND THAT WAS IMPORTANT TO THEM BECAUSE WHEN SOMEONE DIED THAT IS LIKE LOSING YOUR FOOD FOR THE REST OF THE TRIBE.

ARTS AND ARCHITECTURE

THE EGYPTIANS WERE VERY FAMOUS FOR THEIR WELL THOUGHT OUT SCULPTURES OF THE GREAT SPINX OF GIZA AND THE STATUES OF THE PHARAOHS AT THE ABU SIMBEL TEMPLE.THE TEMPLES WERE AT LEAST 60 FEET TALL AND THE SPINX WERE OVER 240 FEET LONG.THEY WOULD ALSO PAINT ON TOMB WALLS OF THE RICH AND POWERFUL THESE PAINTINGS WERE THEIR TO HELP THE PEOPLE IN THE AFTERLIFE.THEY USED TABLETS AND PENS ,THE PENS WERE MADE OUT OF SHARPENED REEDS AND THE TABLETS OUT OF PAPYRUS PAPER.
