  • The Peasants were the people farming, their farming revolved around the 3 seasons of the Nile. The three seasons were the Flooding season, the Planting season, and the Harvest season. Flooding season lasted from June to September. In that time the nile flooded over the fields and the banks and fertilized them. In October the planting season begins, farmers planted seeds all over the fields and the biggest crops they planted was wheat and barley used for bread. The harvest season begins in march, Usually the farmers entire family helped for the harvest. The men cut down the plants with slickets(sharpe blades with wooden handles and the women and children gathered tall stalks of grain. Peasants often sang songs to pass by time.
  • Farming
  • Peasants had the worst comfort in any of the social classes. The lived in plain houses made of mud and brick. Their furniture was sparce, often woven mats. The Peasants typical daily meal might be made up of onions, cucumbers, fish, and homemade bread. Peas and lentils were also common. Peasants spent most of their time working but they did have time to play. Men enjoyed a river game that involved knocking each other off papyrus rafts. The end of harvest season was an important time of year for the peasants. As a reward for their hard work, they were allowed to keep some of the leftover grain for themselves.
  • Daily life of a Peasant
  • The End
  • I hope that you learned a little bit more about the Peasants in the Egyptian age.
