Hey! Down here! I'll be your guidance counselor. Did you know that Egypt is mostly desert and there isn't much rain.
Red Land (see left) and Black land (see right)
The 'red land' was the dry desert that protected Egypt on two sides. These deserts split ancient Egypt from other countries and invading armies.
The 'black land' was the fertile land on the banks of the Nile.This was the only land in ancient Egypt that could be farmed because a layer of rich, black silt was deposited there every year after the Nile flooded.
This is the Nile River. It is our main source of water, with cataracts and a delta. It floods every so often and leaves a layer of silt which we use as an irrigation system.
A cataract is a fast moving rapid which makes it hard to cross the river. The delta is our main farm land, because of the rich soil that is there.
This is Menes, our pharaoh. He controls both Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt. He is the first pharaoh to have a dynasty, or series of rulers from the same family, and to wear both crowns from Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt as one.
Our people believe in the after life and want our pharaoh to be happy and also have power in the after life. He will be mummified and then buried in a pyramid.
This is the pyramid our great pharaoh will be buried in. It wasn't built by me, I'm a scribe. It was built by all farmers or slaves who suffered a lot in the heat.
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
