Stable Food Supply
Egypt relied on the Nile river for food and water. It provided fertile land for crops to grow. It would sometimes flood the land and it would make black mud, which is good for farming. The Egyptians called this the Gift of the Nile.They also used the water wheel and the river for an irrigation system.
The Egyptians had foods like fruits, vegetables, lamb, goats, and beer. The main food they ate was bread. They planted things like wheat and barley. The ancient Egyptians ate with there hands because they had no silverware. Without the Nile Egypt would be a desert.
