The Egyptian culture was housed in northeastern Africa. The Nile River was a huge source of how Egyptians thrived. The Nile was used to water bountiful crops. Within the river was a great source of plant and animal life that provided food. The Nile was also used to transport trade. The culture was rich in art, religion, and government. Something that many students find interesting about this culture is that those that could read and write were seen as the most powerful of the culture. The Egyptian civilization is one of the most fascinating ancient civilizations because there is still a modern country where it once flourished. In past times Egyptian rulers oversaw territory’s outside their border including parts of modern-day Israel and Syria. For a country that was at one time occupied by several other Nation States including Greeks and Romans, Egypt is a quite a resilient region of the planet.
