The length of the Nile River is approximately 6650 kilometres (4132 miles). It is believed to be the longest river in the world.

The Nile River has huge significance in regards to Ancient Egypt. Most of Ancient Egypt’s historical sites are located along the banks of the Nile River including cities such as Luxor and Cairo.

In 1787, the famous Rosetta stone was found in the Nile Delta in the city of Rosetta. This Ancient Egyptian artifact played a key role in modern understanding of Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Around 40 million people (half of Egypt’s population) live in the Nile Delta region.

Many treasures were found burried within the tombs, mostly from gold and with jewels
