Important jobs in ancient Egypt
included soldiers, scribes, artists, and peasants. Most jobs were
inherited. If your father was a farmer, so were you. But there
were some exceptions to the inherited job tradition.
Anyone, for example, could become an
artist if they had exceptional talent. But most artists inherited
their job from their father.
Another exception was a scribe. Anyone could learn to be a
scribe if they had the talent. Learning to be a script was a
complicated process. Scribes went to scribe school. Most who attended
did not pass the course.
Those who passed the course were in
high demand. In ancient Egypt, everything was
written down. The ancient Egyptians loved lists - lists of goods in
the storehouse to lists of flowers in the garden.
scribes could work their way up the social ladder, all the way up to Pharaoh's court.
