Ancient Egypt

By Caitlyn Monga

The Sphinx
The Very First Pyramid
Why was the river nile so important to egypt?
The Nile river was important to the Ancient Egyptians because it kept them alive & developed their knowledge. They depended on it for food, water, transportation and much more. They even thought of it as a kind of god. It flooded once every year, creating fertile soil for growing crops.
A Map Of Egypt
10 facts
The very first pyramid in Egypt was built for King Zoser around 2650 BC. It is known as a Step-Pyramid because it doesn't have a pyramid shape but the pyramid looks as though it has five steps
For years, Egyptologists and archaeologists have thought the Great Sphinx of Giza was about 4,500 years old, dating to around 2500 B.C. However some recent studies have said that the Sphinx was built in 7000 B.C.

The sphinx is a lions body with a pharoahs head
Ancient Egypts Beliefs
Egyptians believed the nile river was a god because it helped them survive and eat.

According to the Egyptian account of creation, only the premordial waters existed at first. Then Ra, the sun, came out of an egg (a flower, in some versions) that appeared on the surface of the water. Ra brought forth four children, the gods Shu and Geb and the goddesses Tefnut and Nut. Shu and Tefnut became the atmosphere. They stood on Geb, who became the earth, and raised up Nut, who became the sky. Ra ruled over all. Geb and Nut later had two sons, Set and Osiris, and two daughters, Isis and Nephthys. Osiris succeeded Ra as king of the earth, helped by Isis, his sister-wife. Set, however, hated his brother and killed him. Isis then embalmed her husband's body with the help of the god Anubis, who thus became the god of embalming. The powerful charms of Isis resurrected Osiris, who became king of the netherworld, the land of the dead. Horus, who was the son of Osiris and Isis, later defeated Set in a great battle and became king of the earth
