The Nile River Flood cycle chart explains that there is three seasons, a planting and growing season, a flooding season, and a harvesting season (Doc B). This justifies that the flood cycle provided water from the flood season and when they were done harvesting it there was food . The map of Egypt circa 1500 BCE illustrates that all of the important cities and settlement were surrounded by the Nile (Doc A). In the picture the river went straight down the map with the cities on both sides right up against it (Doc A). This certifies that there was a lot of water for bathing, irrigation, and drinking.
Because of this river, the Egyptians had a place to settle down, develop a religion, trade, and eat. If not for the Nile, Egypt wouldn’t have been as it is today. One way the Nile influenced Ancient Egypt was its creation of the land. It turned a barren desert into a fruitful oasis. In Document A, I can see from the map that all of the cities are surrounding the Nile, and not one city strays from the path of the water.
Noah’s Ark: Voyage for the Truth The Genesis Flood is an extraordinary event that occurred thousands of years ago. Approximately 4,800 years ago, God decided to flood the Earth in order to cleanse the world of sin. God gave Noah the task of building a gigantic vessel large enough to hold two of every species in the world. Welcoming this task with open arms, Noah constructed the Ark. The enormous vessel sailed the waters for months until the water resided.
The Nile was the base of the Egyptians seasons because of the Nile’s flood season, the seasons were Akhet the flood season mid-June to mid-October, Peret the planting and growing season mid-October to mid-February, and Shemu the harvest season mid-February to mid-June (Document B). 95% of the people's jobs had to do with farming which became a common job because of the Nile (Document B and C). If the Nile didn’t exist their crops wouldn’t have grown as well or at all because the Nile brings sun and water to the crops during Akhet to let them grow (Document B/Information I already knew). The Nile changed so much of the economy that the Nile was almost like the governor of Ancient Egypt if they had one.
The very first reason why Mali’s cultural exchanges erupted was because of the wealth Mali got from trading gold and salt. Back in the 14th century, salt was a huge resource to many Empires because salt drastically changed the taste to food. Salt also slowed down raw meats from going bad by pulling out the moisture
The Nile River is divided into two region which is Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt through the Mediterranean Sea, Along the Nile River, the greater part of the major cities of Ancient Egypt were manufactured as the river could be one of the main road during the Empire. In fact, this Nile River is still become one of the road that allow
The tribes of the Southeast built their houses out of mud and other resources that were available at that time. The Southeast has fertile coastal plains, river valleys, mountains, and swamps. I think that it rains one part of the year to create a flood providing the rich soil for the crops to grow. Just like the other Native American religions the Southeast’s tribe’s religions were Animism and
Perhaps the mentioned afterlife of Osiris in the Pyramids of Teti they may have come across, had been something the kings felt reassuring, as they had hoped the importance of their status in the physical world wouldn’t just decay in a tomb, but instead they could achieve an eternal life where the soul would keep governing the underworld. As previously mentioned, the Pyramids of Teti were one source, where the tale had been publicly displayed with carvings, regarding the afterlife and it was once a temple dedicated to Anubis, God of the dead before passing the title to Osiris. Ritual performances during this period were mainly consisted of funerary nature practice. The time and resources that had been gone into finding specific materials for the rituals, with some of the supplies being gold to be buried in the tomb alongside the corpse, we understand that we also have at our disposal, a collection of “some Egyptian paintings have been found to represent scantily clad girls who danced to music played by seated musicians” (A short history of ancient theatre, 2016) that shows us the types of preparations that had taken place. If the ritual was performed how the carvings of the play had been instructed, then the soul of
The people of the Indus River Valley Civilization ate lots of bread and beer, and the rich ones might have enjoyed some fruits. The different civilizations also developed different things to improve their society. Mesopotamians were the first ancient people to create an organized, permanent set of laws - the code of Hammurabi. Ancient Egypt was the first ancient river valley civilization to invent sails. They use these sails to ride up and down the Nile River trading
West Africa had a great history, and had 4 different climate zones because of its location. The climate zones were Desert, Sahel, Savannah, and Rainforest, West Africa was in the Sahel, underneath the ginormous Saharan Desert. One of the first empires in West Africa was Gahna, they had formed by conquering different groups. West Africans (deleted “They”) had lots and lots of gold mines, which was their key bartering tool, because they needed to trade for salt, which allows your body to store water longer, and preserve meat for up to a year. To get salt, West Africans had to trade with the North Africans, because they had a very large supply of it (deleted extra space), and how they would do that is by using the silent bartering method.
In Mesopotamia, the rivers Tigris and Euphrates flooded the land each year. This flooding provided the earth with a rich soil that was ideal for agriculture. With this fertile soil, humans were capable of planting crops and engaging in cultivation. Hunters and gatherers settled down and began to domesticate animals and crops, as well as develop stronger homes. Organization and social skills began to advance, regulations and government were created, and a larger civilization started to form.
