In this today’s world with many modern technologies and development people still talk about “Egyptian civilization” that Why they build those pyramids? How many Gods they believe? How they create laws? About their pharaohs, rules and many more. 

Egyptian civilization has started from 3100 B.C. and the civilization would not have started in Egypt without the Nile. The river was a gift for the civilization because every year the river flooded the whole valley it left a new layer of fertile soil on the land. The nutrient-soil was so rich that can produce surplus crops and can support a vast population. The Egyptians built all their temples, palaces and tombs near the river. They even built planked boats to trade with other region and the river also helped the soldiers to travel quickly. The Nile river is an important part of the civilization because with the help of that their agriculture is rich and fair. They use a writing format called “Hieroglyphics” with that they wrote their daily activities and their calculation. They even wrote many things of what they believe their government laws and about their Kings and Pharaohs. They created a paper like materials with the help of “papyrus” tree and wrote all their information. They where very experts with their arts and crafts they even drew pictures by engraving on the walls specially for tombs, temples and palaces of their Gods, daily routine and explaining situations. 

The Egyptians have achieved many things including calender to keep record of their day to day trading information and we are still using the format. In many engraving pictures it shows that they know the uses of glass-blowing and how to create it and their basic materials are metal, copper and gold to work and create things. 

Their best achievement are building those huge pyramids, temples and palaces where as at that time studies says that they didn’t have that advanced technology to build this type of structures. By seeing those sculptures and statues it also proves that they practice standardization and measurement. There where certain group of people who studies and practices about measurement, standardization, anatomy and medicine as a prove we have seen mummies inside those pyramids. Their believes of religion is the most important part in Egyptian civilization. They believe in different type of Gods and Goddess such as God-Ra is the Sun God, God-Osiris is the god of fertility and many more. One of the main reason of building those pyramids for their Kings & Queens and mummify their bodies is because they strongly believe their is live after death. 

Egyptian civilization is divided in to three part Old Kingdom where Pharaohs where consider as Gods, first pyramid was build in Giza and crop failures, cost of pyramids leads to collapse old kingdom. Second is Middle Kingdom where traders has contacts with Middle East and Hyksos invaded and occupied the delta region. Last but not the least third is New Kingdom where powerful pharaohs created a large empire and pyramids, ramses ii expanded egyptian rule to syria and egyptian power declined.
