Transcript of Ancient Egypt Daily Life - Servants

Ancient Egypt Daily Life - SERVANTS
By Ellen D. 2014
Slaves would do many things for their master. They would cook for them, dress them, serve them, clean them etc. Male servants could work on building projects or sent to fight in the army. Women could work on the fields, if they weren't a maid/servant for the wealthy. Servants would do many of the work for his/her master.
Servants were positioned at the bottom of the population pyramid. This means that they were the most populous but had the least rights of all Ancient Egyptians.
Servants had jobs as:
cooks
bakers
maids
food servers
musicians
field hands
carpenters
weavers
(Casson, n.d.)
Lifestyle
CLOTHING:
They would wear:
simple kilts and dresses (Anon., n.d.)
In Egyptian society, a man's status was demonstrated by how elaborate his kilt was and how fine the linen was that was used to make it. The kilts of rich nobles and Pharaohs were often very intricately pleated, and must have been difficult for servants to care for. In contrast a servant's kilt would be plain and simple.
Some women, like dancing girls and servants, went without clothing other than their jewelery. Other female servants wore simple dresses
FAMILY:
Servants:
Didn't usually keep in contact with parents and extended family
Couldn't move up the social ladder, but it was possible for their children to do so (Discovery Education, 2014).
CLOTHING:
LEISURE:
HOUSING:
Servants didn't have a permanent home because they were always moving to find new jobs & opportunities in different cities and estates. However, they could own property if they wanted to. These properties would likely be made from mud bricks (Anon., n.d.).
RELIGION:
Servants:
Would pray and worship all of the gods and goddess
They did not have any particular gods or goddess' that only servants or slaves prayed to
Most Ancient Egyptian areas had a particular god/goddess that was prayed to by anyone who lived in that area
Followed the Book of Death (Anon., n.d.)
RELIGION:
PLACE IN SOCIETY:
Servants weren't badly treated, but they did not have many rights. They could own their own property but couldn't own or inherit land. Some servants had no rights at all. These were servants who were the captives of war (Discovery Education, 2014). The difference between slaves and servants are that slaves mostly did jobs that included hard labor but servants did more small tasks in different jobs
For leisure, servants would:
Hunt
Fish
Swim
(Niwt, 2001).
