About 80 percent of the Egyptian population were servants and slaves. Both men and women were servants and they were treated kindly. They can not own land but they can own property. They can not move up the social pyramid but their children can. The only servants that have no rights at all were soldiers in war. Servants were considered as slaves. They usually worked for royalty or wealthy families. However, they had to pay taxes.

Scribes were very important people in Ancient Egypt, but they were made of men only. It took around a decade for a scribe to learn. Although learning how to be a scribe costs a lot of money. Luckily for them, they didn't do any labor, pay taxes, but they kept track of taxes, laws, stocks, magic spells, etc. They were one of the smartest people. Their paper were made out of papyrus and their pens were made out of a reed stem.
The Egyptian lived in mud bricks. Many grew wheat, flax, grain, barley, vegetables,figs, melons, pomegranates, vines and fruit trees. They grew their crops next to the Nile River which is known as black land. It was left behind after the yearly floods. The three seasons of farming in Ancient Egypt is the Akhet, Peret and Shemu. Akhet is inundation or the flooding seaon. Peret known as Emergence is when the farmers grow their crops. Shemu is when they harvest the crops.
