Egyptian history is rich, vibrant, and full of interesting cultural knowledge. Egypt is one of the most fertile countries located in the Mediterranean Sea; because approximately 40,000 years ago many people lived in Egypt earlier than in other places. The Egyptian environment is a hot and dry area, because it is a part of the Sahara Desert. Many Egyptians’ religious beliefs were polytheistic; they believed in several different gods. The economy during the ancient Egyptian time period was different because they were one of the first groups on earth to begin the farming trade. Although Egyptian history occurred many years ago, it is still interesting and fascinating. (Environment/ culture, Religion, Economy)
Of course, Ancient Egypt was famously known for their pyramids. Which was used to store dead bodies of deceased kings and all the things they believed he needed in the afterlife. The temples were designed with consistent pattern, typically with an entrance, open forecourts, roofed hall and the inner sanctuary. As often seen on television, as one would go down the hallway of the temple the width would get narrow and narrower. Not surprising at all but only priests were allowed in the sanctuary. Paintings of Ancient Egypt, as seen mainly in the temples, were bright and colorful. These paintings presented both daily life of the Egyptians, and also their ideas of the afterlife.
The population number of Ancient Egypt extended between 1.5 and 6 million depending on the period. Most of the people lived close to the Nile, but there were also a significant number of people who lived in the Nile Delta. The desert population was small compared to the population of both Nile and the Nile Delta. The Ancient Egypt had almost the same ethnic characteristics as modern Egyptians, medium dark skin and soft, dark hair. Their living condition looked fairly nice and appealing to the eye but they were made from dried mud and with roofs from palm tree trunks and leaves. Majority of the houses were one bedroom huts, while others were multi-room mansions of the rich. Their furniture was usually used, and candles and lamps were used to light the inside of the houses. Charcoal and wood was used for fuel, while clay ovens and fires were used for cooking.
Egyptians have been polytheistic since the beginning of time and throughout the Old Kingdom, Middle Kingdom, and New Kingdom. This means they had faith in many different gods. They were said to have worshipped their gods with animal sacrifices and many of the people would carry images of the god from place to place. In the beginning the Egyptians believed that only pharaohs had an afterlife. The Egyptians also believed that all of Egypt belonged to the gods and Pharaoh was their representative here on earth. Some thought that maybe he was a god himself and that made everything in Egypt belong to him. They later began to believe that everyone, including animals, had an afterlife. Egyptians...
