But how did the Nile shape Ancient Egypt? The Nile River running 4,160 miles is used for transportation, water, gathering food, and bathing to keep away disease. If the Nile was not present what would happen? The Nile River formed Ancient Egypt because the Egyptians believed in it and used the water to developed crops. More and more people coming in made it a bigger population.
The river allowed the soil on the riverbanks to be enriched with nutrients, thus allowing the Egyptians to develop agricultural practices and grow numerous crops. . The river also allowed the Egyptians to bathe, travel, catch fish and drink the water. This then resulted in a lacklustre chance of famine from occurring. The Ancient Egyptians constructed their own dwellings by creating their properties out of mud-bricks, using materials provided by the rich soil of the river Nile.
It was very genius for Aztecs as well as Incas to have generated an agricultural structure. The Aztecs and the Mayas both also had numerical logic. A general math system was formed through their cleverness. The mathematical formulation was based on the unit 20. Art and Craftsmen took part as well in all the Mayas, the Aztecs, and the Incas.
They developed their own forms of writing, different tools and architecture. The rivers that these civilizations were built around directly impacted the way they viewed their gods. The Nile was a very strong and reliable river. It flooded annually blessing the Ancient Egyptians with a richer agriculture then Ancient Mesopotamians. (pg 17) Because of this the Egyptians viewed their gods as reliable beings who wanted to help them.
At the in Mesopotamian there were people who were called Sumerians, who were considered the best of the civilizations, they counted on the two rivers to provided them with food supply and drinking water. The two rivers played a big role and had a major impact on the civilizations advancement in technology and agriculture. Sumerians had found ways to rise of mass agriculture. With the help of the water supply the farmers were capable of supporting large urban
In Egyptian mythology, Osiris was a great Egyptian king and later ruled over the underworld. Osiris had many positive characteristics and attributes, which helped him rule and later gave stability to his cult that followed. He was involved with the burial process and the rule of the underworld, which many Egyptian people believed in. Osiris was also connected with the cycles found in agriculture, which was important to the survival of the
This phenomena is significant to Herodotus as it provided him with insight into the relationship between the Egyptians and the Nile and helped him better understand the God Hapy. The Famine Stele text responds to the question of finding out ‘where the inundation is born, and what God resides at the source of the flood season that will join with the Pharaoh’ (as quoted on paragraph 3 line 1 and 2 of the famine stele). This topic is significant to the Egyptians as they rely on the Nile to bring wealth to their people in the form of crops and fertile land which they need to survive. They also relied on the inundation to bring in the New Year as it was the first season of the New Year. The inundation would be significant to Herodotus as
Ancient Egypt Dear King Hammurabi, my quest from Egypt was quite a journey, let me start by telling you about the Nile River. The Nile is the longest river in the world, with a total distance of 4,000 miles long. This spectacular river floods every year, but in Egypt this is a good thing because it provided the Egyptians with fertile silt for crops. On top of that, it also provided the water of which they sailed ships out of Egypt. Fish and other animals were also in the Nile, which was another way it was good for food.
Crops like fruits, vegetable, cotton, wheat, and rice were able to be grown and harvested. This gave the Indus a good food supply, and items for trade. However, the rivers in the Indus valley commonly changed course, more often in times of flooding. This made them unreliable. Rivers
Why did the first cities emerge in major agricultural hearths? The main reason is because with good agricultural hearths the people who lived there didn’t have to be nomads anymore, they could create townships and stay in one place for longer. It also allowed different people to interact after they created towns and trade or barter with other people. As the towns grew bigger they eventually formed into the first cities. 13.
I believe that in Egypt a complex society emerged because of the location they chose to inhabit. The Egyptians had a more productive and protected area of land. The Nile River was predictable and made it easier to grow crops (Wallech, 2013, p. 54). In addition, the Egyptians had only one of four frontiers susceptible to invasion (p. 54). Therefore, they were able to focus on growing crops and development as a civilization.
