Farmers of Ancient Egypt!
Transcript of Farmers of Ancient Egypt!
By Chasten M. Wilson
Ancient Egyptian farmers grew things like: wheat, barley, vegetables, figs, melons, pomegranates, vines, flax, and grain!
There were three seasons in the eyes of a farmer: Peret, Akhet, and Shemu. Akhet was the flooding season, Peret was the growing season, and Shemu was the harvesting season.
Ancient Egyptian farmers had simple tools, such as: winnowing scoops, hoes, rakes, flint-bladed sickles and ploughs.
Where were crops grown?
The Egyptians grew their crops along the banks of the River Nile on the rich black soil after Ahket, the flooding season.
