Storyboard Text

  • Pharaoh 
  • Hello, my name is Hatshepsut and I rule Ancient Egypt 
  • Government Officials
  • We the government officials advise the pharaoh and chief judge. Also we have big homes to live in.
  • Priests
  • We priests advice the pharaoh too but we can't eat fish and we can.'t have body hair 
  • The pharaoh was at the top of the social pyramid.  Also the pharaoh had the most free time during the day.
  • Scribes
  • The government officials collect taxes and oversee govt. Sometimes they go to war and always do national security. They have fancy clothing, jewelry, and perfume. Of course they have time to socialize and have banquets.
  • Artisans
  • The priests oversaw the temple, gave advice and did healings/mummification.The priests could only wear Linen clothing and they would have to go to the pool 4x a day to be clean.  
  • Peasants 
  • The scribes recorded all kinds of things like grain, census, taxes, court, cases, laws, and number of soldiers. In the scribe schools the men would go at age 5 and they had to memorize 700 hieroglyphics. The men stayed from dawn to sunset if they did something bad the punishment would be getting beat. Though at the end they would be well paid.
  • Only us men were scribes, there was no women as scribes 
  • The Artisans make clothing, jewelry, pots, tools, etc. They work 10 days and then the "weekend". Artisans got food from employers. 
  • We Artisans do royal projects (tombs, temples). We have homes with 3 rooms.
  • The peasants build monuments designed by artisans they ate fish and vegetables for food. Very little time for leisure since they worked all day. Peasants were at the bottom of the social pyramid since there was the most of them and they paid taxes in food.
  • We peasants grow food for the kingdom but we have small houses with no furniture.
