The Nile River influenced the ancient Egyptians’ economy, settlement, and culture. The Nile River influenced the ancient Egyptians’ economy. The Nile River allowed for a national ancient Egyptian economy. Unlike other ancient civilizations, Egypt was hundreds of miles long and only a few miles wide and was surrounded by deserts (Doc A). Egypt’s awkward shape made bartering from the northern end to the southern end virtually impossible.
How one river changed a Civilization Ancient Egypt has had many great discoveries and natural resources from their land that have really changed their society. One of the most important resources to them was the Nile river Valley. It has been said that without the Nile river Egyptian Civilization would not have been possible (Life along the Nile). The Nile river running as the longest river in the world is 4184 miles long. Obtaining its name from the Greek word Neilos, meaning Valley.
Ancient Egypt was the most advance civilization of antiquity. They had fairly advance Medicine, Architecture, Religion, and were also wise in philosophy. Greek culture learned a lot from Egypt, and they constantly referred to them and sought to find their ancestors in Egypt. The Nile was a fundamental element for the flourishing of the civilization of ancient Egypt, most of the population of cities were in the Nile valley and the Delta. The Nile was vital to Egyptian culture from the stone age.
The first people who were granted the right of possessing land authorized the people to cultivate worn out land and grow better crops, as tobacco depletes minerals and nutrients from the ground. The tobacco was sold for 5 to 10 times more in the 1620s, which was a major advantage for the sellers. The Massachusetts’ economy depended on shipbuilding, fishing and trading. This made it very stable. Chesapeake’s population has split 74% men and 10% women.
The USA, United States of America, made a survey in 1956 to identify the site where the Renaissance dam is going to be on the Blue Nile River. However, this dam has started to be constructed since 2011. This dam will shorten the Egypt’s share of water. As a result, Egypt will have an empty river because people will consume water till it finishes and Egypt has no other alternative sources of water. The comic shows that the Nile will run out of water by 2050; it would happen because of the Renaissance Dam and our consumption of water.
A History of the World in 6 Glasses, by Tom Standage is a great book that relates past history to the twenty-first century. The book shares how a few of the most popular drinks today, were helpful during the course of history. The drinks include, wine, beer, cola, tea, spirits, and coffee. The wine was used as an export of trade which brought in a lot of Greek culture. Beer was used in egypt in order to pay wages, because it was an important aspect to many of the civilians.
Industries such as Texaco, Exxon, Shell, and Reynolds Metals moved in to Louisiana due to the convenience of navigation and fresh water around (McPhee 3). These industries helped make the river popular and known for its importance, “A sustainable restoration of the Mississippi River Delta is a good investment with a high rate of return. Gaining ground is the most successful economic strategy” (Batker). Plenty of money was brought in due to all of the companies that depended on the water from the Mississippi River. There was an attempt to have the Mississippi River captured but the Rabalais that works for the US Army Corps of Engineers tried to prevent it.
For example, we can use the tax income to protect the Suez Canal. This canal could be the root of our success. We can force a million Egyptian workers to clean up the 100 million cubic feet of sand and dirt that is in the canal. But hey, who 's counting? We are.
These plateaus could be as high as 2,000 meters. The two rainy seasons help contribute to the fertile land. The Axum empire was formed around 400 B.C.E. Many people believe that is was first founded by the son of King Solomon of Israel and the Queen of Sheba. This is only a popular legend and has yet to be confirmed.
Hammurabi, who was a king of the “old Babylonian empire”(Jona Lendering, 2004), ruled from 1792 BCE to 1750 BCE for forty-two years and accomplished a great riverine civilization such that no other king had done to the extent of its mastery. The city of Babylon which is located in Mesopotamia is known as “modern day” Iraq which lies between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. These rivers helped in creating rich and fertile soil which allowed humans to plant and grow crops in which they needed to survive. Through trade, humans could communicate with one another and grasp on to new ideas. As a result of the rivers, civilization began to flourish outstandingly.
Oil can do some things that people would have not normally thought of. It can build cities and and raise the pay, but it can also open up opportunities for some. When Texas discovered oil within a few years there was towns that popped up one year with thousands of people, people left to work in the oil fields and their old jobs were available and were well paying, and when people have open plots of land they sometimes drilled for oil and made a lot of money for various uses. In the year of 1925 Wink Texas was not even on the map much less a city. It was in 1927 however that Wink Texas was on the map with a population of 3,500 people mostly looking for jobs dealing with oil.
Thutmose died after ruling for 15 years and Hatshepsut became a co-ruler to Thutmose III. An adviser that was quite influential to Hatshepsut was named Senenmut. He was a servant to Hatahepsut but some people think that he might also have been her lover. Egypt was very successful during Hatshepsut 's reign. This was because she focused on the economy.
The relief demonstrates a trading expedition to the far land of punt. The voyage was made in Hatshepsut’s 9th year of her reign and took five ships filled to the brim with tradable goods such as wine, beer barley, cloth, daggers, axes, swords and etc. This was Hatshepsut’s most recognisable expedition that have been clearly depicted on many temples (karnake) in order to demonstrate to the people her success that can be seen doing Amuns will and being profitable to Egypt. Most of these reliefs seem one sided by the Egyptians seem to be the only ones with tradable goods while the natives are in conical house. This could suggest possible propaganda to broadly demonstrates Egypt’s prosperity due to Hatshepsut.
This information could make an individual question why this research was not conducted earlier? Some other areas of interest that were not mentioned in the video are located on the TVA website which notates that the Tellico dam has a flood storage capacity of 120,000 acre-feet and that it provides a large amount of water surface for recreational activities for the community and tourist that visit each year (Tellico, nd). Tellico is only about forty five minutes away from the town where I live and is always packed during the spring, summer and fall months. Of course, it is not just because of the water activities there are many other reasons to visit this area. One last piece of information that I would like to share is that although this dam does not generate electricity in this location, however, it does flow through a small canal to the Fort Loudoun Dam which helps to drive four of their generators.
Panama canal will Help the economy with 2 Billion dollars annually with how all the Cargos boats and various People in boats for traveling for marketing and industrial material.Various methods the CPA saves materials for the Canal is to save most of the water the canal actually uses so they Conserve about 60% of water for the waters to rise and ships being able to have a clearing from the bottom of the canal to the boat itself and the amount of things is conserved is money that the united states is saving overtime. one problem when the US was making the canal was that when you have to take a big piece of land to make something you have to take out a lot of trees for such a big industrial idea.One thing the Us does is give some profit to Panama’s General Treasury each year which is about 800million dollars and with that it means that americans are making bank and with America give panama profit it gives that peacfullness like what panama asked for in the treaty so its a accommodation for both countrys in the
