to our minds …
Back in time, these three elements had a perfect combination, which helped to develop one of

The Nile River played an important role in shaping the lives and society of Ancient Egypt. The
Nile provided the Ancient Egyptians with food, transportation, building materials, and more.
Upper and Lower Egypt
  The Nile River flows north through
Egypt and into the Mediterranean Sea.
Ancient Egypt was divided into two
regions, Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt.
This looks a bit confusing on a map
because Upper Egypt is to the south and
Lower Egypt is to the north. This is
because the names come from the flow of
the Nile River.

Surveyors also provided information for
construction work. Of particular
