Nile River

The Nile River Played A Big Part In Egyptian Geography

The Nile river provided a water source for the Egyptians.  It also gave them food such as fish to eat.  It flows south to north, not north to south.  The Nile River also brought to Ancient Egypt reeds which were used for paper.  Plus, every spring, the river would flood its banks and deposit nutrient full soil to the farmlands.

The Euphrates River is one of the two defining rivers of Mesopotamia. Originating in eastern Turkey, the Euphrates flows through Syria and Iraq to join the Tigris in the Shatt al-Arab, which empties into the Persian Gulf.
