Egypt was very important for two main reasons, one of them being the amount of food Egypt had and its strong reliable food source. The farms in Egypt were lacated all around the Nile River. When the river floods, it makes the area around it very fertilized because when the river floods, it carries silt (fine sand, clay, or other material carried by running water and deposited as a sediment, especially in a channel or harbor) and deposits it in the land. So the British used Egypt’s resources to feed their people in Africa. There were a lot of reasons Britain had to colonize Egypt, the most important reason is the Suez Canal.

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.
Under Hammurabi the Babylonians had a set of laws, and the Egyptians excelled at writing. In the Middle Kingdom, gods were believed to care for all of its people and not just the Divine Monarch (Wallech, 2013, p. 60). The rulers cared for the kingdom 's people which showed a sharp change in attitudes toward people. No longer was the ruler placed on a pedestal and treated like untouchable royalty. Treating citizens as a part of society assisted Egypt in growing and becoming successful in trade, writing and protecting itself.
This effect was economically positive because the British created new goods and crops that were available for the natives to buy. If Africans had the right to certain goods, then that meant there was more equality as well. According to Document #2, written by Dadabhai Naoroji, an Indian leader and writer, in Bombay, India in 1871. He made this document to explain the advantages and disadvantages of the imperialism to the British government and the natives as well.

The Sri Yantra is considered one of the most positive energy symbols. This powerful symbol has been used for thousands of years as a way to bring peace, good fortune and prosperity into being.

Kings, or Pharaohs, were chosen by the Gods to rule the land and were tasked with providing the people of Egypt with some necessities and most importantly, the annual flooding, or inundation, of the Nile. The Nile, being the lifeline of the Egyptian kingdoms, was the most important variable of their lives, it’s inundation brought life and order to the land while, if the waters failed to rise, it could also bring death and chaos.

Mesopotamia was a successful civilization because of it 's farming. I know this beause If they weren 't successful in farming, they couldn 't build up theire civilization. The text stated that the two rivers would bring in silt, which made rich farming land. This in turn, made them need less farmers, so people got other jobs. The text says they built temples and started trading with other villages.
Well many colonists died because of their water supply, their relationship with the natives, and because of their knowledge of survival. These factor lead to early death for most of the colonist. The water supply for Jamestown was brackish, or filthy, and lead to disease. Also, there were many years that they went through a drought and did not have enough water for farming.

The Nile river originates in from lakes in Ethiopia and Kenya and ends in the Mediterranean Sea after flowing through Egypt.

The way the flooding of the Nile deposited the nutrients on top of the soil all their ploughs had to do was break up the topsoil before they planted the seed. Instead of having to turn over soil like heavy ploughs in other
