  • The Work of Scribes
  • Ancient Egyptians made all kinds of records, so scribes held a wide variety of jobs.
  • They would keep records of grain and food supply, a government census counted the people living in egypt, some calculated and collected taxes.
  • Legal Scribes recorded court cases and helped enforce laws. Military scribes kept track of the soldiers, food supply, and enemies killed in battle.
  • All scribes used the same tools. For pens, he used sharpened reeds. For paper he used a sheet of papyrus laid out on a writing tablet.
  • The tablets were made from wood or stone. Each tablet contained two wells, one for black ink and one for red ink. A small container was used to then wet the ink.
