Where did the ancient Egyptians make their home? In Africa! The ancient Egyptians settled at the mouth of the Nile River, where the Nile runs into the Mediterranean Sea. It was a wonderful place to live. But the ancient Egyptians were not alone. The Nile River is the longest river in the world. Further upstream, other civilizations sprang up along the Nile River. But Egypt was the crown. Egypt had the best land, easy access to the sea for trade with other civilizations around the Mediterranean, and food galore from fish and water fowl and berries and vegetables growing wild. They also planted food. Each year, when the Nile flooded, it left behind a layer of new, rich soil. The Nile River runs through a huge desert. Once you adventure away from the shores along the Nile, this section of Africa is a dangerous place indeed. Let's take a look:
