Transcript of Liam Lowe
Farmers would grow crops like wheat, barley, vegetables, figs, pomegranates, vines, and flax which was made in to linen. They grow the crops on the banks of the Nile River because when it flooded it left rich black soil witch grew great crops for harvesting . To get water with out falling into the river, they used a tool called a shaduf. Most farmers were really rich peasants.
Scribes could have have many different jobs for their society, such as: Recording history and important events
Describing every day life
Writing up contracts
Taking a census of ancient Egypt
Recording court cases
Keeping track of food supply
Keeping calculations for the pharaoh and government
The scribes were very important because if the pharaohs did not have them, it would be hard to calculat numbers, make contracts, and record history.
1 in 1000 slaves would be a scribe.
An Artisan could be a : Carpenter, Metal-worker, Jeweler, Painter, Sculptor, Potter, Stone Carver, or a Weaver." An artist would generally work in stone, clay, wood and fiber, bone, ivory etc. They also worked in metals like tin, copper, gold, bronze and iron. The people who traded with these artists were the Royal Households, the Nobility and the ever growing bourgeoisie-"The higher class (Pharaohs)" as it says in "http://www.ancientegyptianfacts.com/ancient-egyptian-artisans.html" Artisans made most of the Pharaohs's items.
Hieroglyphs were pictures and symbols, used to tell history or events. A picture could mean a word or letter. People could understand Hieroglyphs by using the Rosetta stone to translate the language. Then people found out that a Hieroglyph could mean a sound or syllable. Most Egyptians could not read or write except for higher ranking ones. They developed two systems, the hieratic writing and the demotic writing because they were very smart.
