There is a lot more to Egypt than just the sands of its deserts. Even though there is no rain in Egypt, the Ancient Egyptian culture has produced historical achievements such as creative art forms, and an unusual writing system called hieroglyphics that uses pictures instead of words. Egypt’s water source came from the Nile River in which they built a unique irrigation system from to provide water for its inhabitants as well as provide rich produce.
Egypt’s early history began with a belief in the afterlife and a polytheistic view (belief in many gods) on religion. The Pharaohs of Egypt spared no expense on their tombs and included various types of jewelry and other items they believed they would need in their next life. Some Egyptian kings had their bodies wrapped as mummies before placing them in their adorned coffins.
