Men and women can be servants with one opportunity to be free. Servants could pay out of being a servant but servants did not have a lot of money. We are not treated poorly because who would want their servant to die or be wounded. We could not own land or property, unless we bought it.
Servants could not move up in the working environment, our children could, but anyone higher than us could move up. I can’t be a Pharaoh this is outrages! My children could be a pharaoh though, that makes me feel good, and I do not think anyone can move down in the working environment.

It's King Tut!
Farmers lived in mud brick houses in which the floors were made of mud and walls mud brick. Men and women were allowed to be farmers. Women baked breads in an oven heated by burning cattle dung. They also weaved threads into various items.
To farmers there were three seasons: akhet, peret, and shemu. Akhet was the flooding season that was bad for farmers sometimes. It was good because it brought rich nutrients to the soil. Then, Peret season which was when all the crops grew. Last there was Shemu, the harvesting season where they picked all of their crops. The three seasons were important to the farmers.
The life of a farmer did not change for 4000 years! Farmers used shadufs to get water from the rivers so they can irrigate the crops from The Nile River.
