Posted by seshdotcom on October 13, 2008
EGYPT, THE WORLD’S FIRST SUPERPOWER, WAS BORN ABOUT 5000 B.C.E. in the valley of the Nile River in northeastern Africa,Fitting very closely into a long, narrow threaded by the river and bounded by steep cliffs.The Egyptians called their Homeland as Something called kemet which means Black Land.
How the Name Nile came????—
The Nile, one of the world’s longest rivers, flows more than 4,200 miles north from central Africa to the Mediterranean. The name “Nile” comes from the Greek word Neilos, but only we are calling the river as NILE the Egyptians called it simply iteru, “the river.”The ancient Nile had at least five, and as many as Sixteen outlets to the sea.And the Nile bend into two streams one is a White Nile which rises from Lake Victoria and other one is a Blue Nile which rises from Lake Tana.The two streams join at Khartoum(The capital of Sudan located at the confluence of the Blue Nile and White Nile).
How the water was taken to the people—There was an Overwhelming amount of water from the Great Nile thats sure—
The End of May is the time where there would be complete drought in the Nile. Nile was at its lowest level of the year, and the land was dry and cracked.And in worst case there would be floods which would make some Green Vegetation but sometimes become a nemesis for the planting and harvesting.The Egyptians are said to worship Vital Inundation that is the Flood which does some good things for the People as Hapi-I saw him in a Portrait he is Chubby God with Some plant growing from his head.They held festivals to honor Hapi they are said to have Worship God Hapi by throwing Flowers inside the river in a Particular day called Awru el-Nil, Which happens a national holiday that celebrates the inundation(The Mass inflow of water).
