Ancient Egypt

 
 

The Nile is the longest river in the world. The ancient Egyptians made their home at the mouth of the Nile, where the Nile River meets the Mediterranean Sea. The Nile provided many gifts to these ancient people. Food was found along the Nile. Crops were grown in the black, rich soil. Boats woven with papyrus leaves sailed the Nile. Trade flourished between the towns and cities of ancient Egypt. The ancient Egyptians were not isolated from other cultures, but they were protected. On either side of the Nile, beyond the rich soil, was desert. Mountains rose in the south. To the north was the vast Mediterranean Sea. The geography of Egypt greatly affected the unique culture these ancient people created thousands of years ago.
