Geography of Ancient Egypt


===Ancient Egypt -The Egyptian Timeline===
6000BC
In 6000BC early people settled in the Nile valley. Egyptians began to use clay and silt from the river to make pottery vessels like those in the museum gallery.
5000BC
Around 5000BC many Egyptians farmed sheep and cattle. Some Egyptians grew wheat and barley on the fertile land on the Nile valley.
4500BC
Around 4500BC, sails were used on Egyptian ships for the first time. Boats were the main form of transport in Ancient Egypt.
3500BC
Around 3500BC craftsmen began to create the first wall paintings using hieroglyphic symbols in the Egyptian writing system. You can see some examples of these in Gallery 34 at the museum.
3000BC
Around 3000BC walled towns and villages were built in Egypt. The first buildings were made of mud brick. At the museum you can see a terracotta model of an Ancient Egyptian House.
2500BC
Around 2500BC Egyptians built the Great Sphinx and the Great Pyramid at Giza.
2500BC to 2000BC was the 'Old Kingdom' period.
1550BC
It was around 1550BC that many of the royal tombs were built in the Valley of the Kings. 1500BC - 332BC was the period of the 'New Kingdom'.
1325BC
Around 1325BC, King Tutankhamun was buried in the Valley of the Kings. In 1922 his tomb was discovered, inside were wonderful treasures and the mummy of the Pharaoh covered by a beautiful gold death mask.
332BC
In 332BC Egypt was invaded by Alexander the Great and was then ruled by Greek Kings. The era of the New Kingdom ends.

Cinnamon:

Cinnamon is the inner bark of a tropical evergreen tree. A native of Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon), an island off the southeastern coast of India, the best cinnamon grows along the coastal strip near Colombo. In ancient Egypt cinnamon was used medicinally and as a flavoring for beverages. It was also used in embalming, where body cavities were filled with spiced preservatives. In the ancient world cinnamon was more precious than gold. This is not too surprising though, as in Egypt the abundance of gold made it a fairly common ornamental metal.

cinammon.jpgcinammon-bark.jpgcinammon-tree.jpg

Myrrh was used by the ancient Egyptians, along with natron, for the embalming of mummies.

"Myrrh /ˈmɜr/ from the Arabic مر (mur), is the aromatic resin of a number of small, thorny tree species of the genus Commiphora,[1[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myrrh#cite_note-1|]]] which is an essential oil termed an oleoresin. Myrrh resin is a natural gum. It has been used throughout history as a perfume, incense and medicine. It can also be ingested by mixing it with wine."



frankincense-myrrh.jpg

A mural depicting sacks of frankincense traded from the Land of Punt adorns the walls of the temple of ancient Egyptian Queen Hatshepsut, who died circa 1458 BC.

"Frankincense, also called olibanum, is an aromatic resin used in incense and perfumes, obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia in the family Burseraceae, particularly Boswellia sacra (syn: B. carteri, B. thurifera, B. bhaw-dajiana), B. frereana and B. serrata (Indian frankincense). The English word is derived from Old French "franc encens" (i.e., high quality incense)."

Hymn to the Nile

The ancient Egyptian city of Thebes is developing a new exhibit for its history museum. Sometime around 2100 BCE, an Egyptian priest wrote a hymn for a festival at Thebes celebrating the annual flood of the Nile River. Today, the Egyptian Museum directors want you to help them translate the hymn into modern language that students can understand. Read your portion of the hymn and translate it for modern times. Then, respond to the analysis questions.
