Today we are collecting some papyrus to write on the reed bush to dipped the ink in. Us scribes we make ink by grinding brightly coloured minirals into powder, we mix the powder into liquid so it is easy to apply the ink. we collect the papyrus and reed near the Nile River.

we are keeping records ofamounts of soldiers in the army, numbers of workers and amount of gifts given to the gods.
usually boys are scribes but girls are to but it's really unusaul. My mother and father was a scribe so i was born into it the job.
