In this Prezi
In this Prezi, I (Patrick Cerajewski) and my group members; Alana Dixie and Gaylord Brooks, are going to address questions that you have proposed to us about Ancheint Egypt.
Upper and Lower Egypt
One question is, where is Upper and Lower Egypt. Upper and Lower Egypt are words used to describe Egypt. The description of these two seems simple, Upper in the top, and Lower on the bottom; its quite the contrary. Upper Egypt describes the Southern part of Egypt, and the Lower is the Northern part of Egypt.
The Nile River
The Nile River is one of the longest rivers in the world. The Nile River is about 4,000 miles (or 6,853 kilometers) long and it runs from lake Victoria and ends in Lower Egypt. The Nile drains into the Mediterranean Sea through the Delta. The Nile spans spans all of the way from Uganda to Lower(northern) Egypt. The Nile River has 3 different parts of it.
The Nile Delta
Realm of the dead
The Realm of the Dead is a place where souls go for judgement. It is described as a test of good faith; it means that you will go to heaven if you pass but if you don't pass you will go to the under-world.
The first capital of the Old Kingdom of Egypt was Memphis.
Not the Memphis in Tennessee.
The Nile Delta is a part of the Nile River. The Delta allows water in the river to drain into the Mediterranean Sea. It is located in Lower Egypt(or Northern Egypt). A Delta carries silt to the mouth of a river.
The Old Kingdom
But why you may ask, why is it labeled that way. It's actually pretty simple, before Egyptians had north and south on a compass, they used the Nile River. Where the Nile drains into the Mediterranean Sea is what they called lower. Where the river was fed by Lake Victoria, they called the upper part.
