Ancient Egypt
By Adrian Raic

Significant beliefs, values and practices of the Ancient Egyptians. (Lifestyle, Death and Funerary Customs)
In the Egyptian family the father was responsible for providing for his family while the mother stayed home and raised the children. Ancient Egyptians wore very simple clothing. Egyptians had two very large meals a day, one at dusk and the other at dawn. Something that Ancient Egyptians classify as sport is hunting. Egyptians would always have some sort of jewelery around them.
The Geography of Ancient Egypt and How It Influenced Civilisation
The ancient Egyptians thought of Egypt as being divided into two types of land, the 'black land' and the 'red land'. The black land was the fertile land on the banks of the Nile River. This land was used for farming. E.g. growing crops. This was the only land in Egypt that could be used for farming because
a layer of rich black silt (mud) came into the black land every year after the Nile River had flooded. The red land was the barren desert that protected Egypt on two different sides. These deserts separated Ancient Egypt from neighbouring countries and invading armies. The Nile River is the longest river
in the world. It is significant because it would provide
fast access to many things such as people, animals goods and other things. Every year it would flood making it much easier to grow crops for farmer because of all of the water that it released. It influenced civilsation.
A Key Group and their role in Society and the Role of Thutmoses III
Slaves role in life was to serve the Egyptian King or whoever their master was. Slaves is something well known in Egypt as there was many of them. Slavery had its roots in ancient civilisations including the Egyptian. Slaves constituted the lowest layer of the social pyramid. Wars were common in the ancient world and prisoners of war were gradually turned into slaves. Egyptian slaves were also known to have been executed to accompany their deceased Pharaoh into the afterlife. Fleeing was not easy for a slave. If they tried to escape they were captured and put to punishment. But sometimes, slaves were often set free by the masters themselves.

The Exhibition
of Ancient Egypt

Ancient Egyptians believed that when they died that their spiritual part of their body will continue to exist on. They believed that they would go in an afterlife where the world is similar as before. Although entry into this afterlife was not granted just like that. To enter this after life they believed that they had to negotiate a dangerous under world journey and face the final judgement before they were granted access. If they were successful they would get an eternal substance into their spirit.
Funerary items for placement in the tomb
were purchased from specialist shops or
temples. Although wealthier people would buy much more expensive items such as furniture, expensive
coffins and jewelery. Items could be divided
into two classes. 1. Those for protection and
guidance on the underworld journey and
in the afterlife, such as amulets and the
book of the dead. 2. Those for the provision
of essential nourishment, leisure and comfort
for their eternal spirit such as food and clothing.

Thutmoses III was born in 1504 BC.
When Thutmoses first had the throne
he shared his power for the first 20
years with his aunt. After she died he
became a Pharaoh. Thutmoses was a
skillful warrior who brought Egyptian empire to the zenith of its power by conquering all of Syria, crossing the Euphrates to defeat the Mitannians, and penetrating south along the Nile to Napata in the Sudan. Since Thutmose had plenty of power her tried to use his power to take over countries and more. That was his role to use his power to take over countries and more. He also built a big number of temples and monuments to commemorate his deeds. Thutmoses had gained all of the qualities to become a great ruler who would never lose a battle. He was an accomplished horseman, archer, athlete and discriminating patron of the arts. Thutmose found himself faced with a coalition of the two princes Kadesh and Megiddo, who had created a large army. Also the Mesopotamians and their kinsmen that were living in Syria refused to pay tribute and declared themselves free of Egypt. Thutmose immediately set out with his army and crossing the Sinai desert he marched to the city of Gaza which had remained loyal to Egypt. Thutmoses died in 1426 BC.
