As far back as 5000 years ago , the indigenous inhabitants include the ancient Egyptians and the Berbers whose descendents still live in the mountains of Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia.

Motivation for the European Powers
The British wanted to gain more power. The more territory that they could control, the more important they thought they could become. Africa was tremendously rich in natural resources, which Europe turned into manufactured goods.

Positive and Negative Effects
The British brought over their own culture. The Egyptians were taught a new language, religion, and ways of working with railroads and natural resources. The British made lots of money this way and had payed off some of Egypt's debt.

Resistance and Conflict
The value of Egypt rose dramatically when Suez Canal had been opened. The Suez Canal was half the amount of journey time from Britain to India. Tensions between Egypt and Britain rose, and the result was a war. And the reason was for the amount of money the Egyptian rulers and British were spending.
