I can only answer for the period of the First Dynasty, when dynastic traditions were first starting. Of course, little is known for certain about that period since the hieroglyphic forms were just developing and not nearly as much has been unearthed from those times as compared with later dynasties. From the very start, the early Kings (the word Pharaoh did not come about until later) understood that they needed noblemen to carry out various administrative tasks. Contrary to what many think, women, too, had legal rights and served as noblewomen to the King. In my novels such relationships between the noblemen in service to their King is central to the plots, as there was much intrigue as well as smoothly functioning aspects to the Royal Court.
The formal united kingdom of Egypt was created in 3150 BC by King Menes. This is about the time when historians refer to Egypt as ancient Egypt. However, during 2700-2200 BC, the Old Kingdom period is the first notable ancient Egyptian dynasty when man pyramids were built.

Why is ancient Egypt called ancient Egypt?
Egypt was (and is) a country dominated by the Nile River. During ancient times, Egypt was divided, though not formally, into Upper and Lower regions, which had to do with the course of the Nile River. The Nile flows from south to north, and therefore the southern portion is higher in elevation, thus this was known as upper Egypt – lower Egypt was the area from around the Aswan cataracts to the delta north of Cairo. We here in the US sometimes have a hard time getting this, because most of our major rivers run NORTH to SOUTH (The Mississippi, the Hudson, etc) so we have trouble seeing a river that runs SOUTH to NORTH like the Nile.

The ancient Egyptians did many things including pottery, farming, irrigation and school work. The children that went to school were boys and only boys! Unless the childs family was very wealthy, the girls would learn at home and how to do things around the house. If the student was a very good student the teacher would transfer the student to an upper level where they can use actual papyrus scrolls to write on. Before then, they would have to write on broken pieces of clay pottery.

Around the River Nile because silt was carried down and was clumpedin a pile. The ancient Egyptians thought of Egypt as being divided into twotypes of land, the black land and the red land. The black land was the fertile land on the banks of the Nile.The ancient Egyptians used this land for growing their crops. Thiswas the only land in ancient Egypt that could be farmed because alayer of rich, black silt was deposited there every year after theNile flooded. The red land was the barren desert that protected Egypt on twosides. These deserts separated ancient Egypt from neighboringcountries and invading armies. They also provided the ancientEgyptians with a source for precious metals and semi-preciousstones.

How are ancient China and ancient Egypt are alike?
The influence and benefits of ancient Egypt and its culture are many and varied, and in all honesty I dont believe that anyone; academic or amateur could answer this question completely and definitively. Off the top of my head, we can thank the ancient Egyptians for: i) Mathematics/Geometry (think how the Pyramids were built). ii) Alcohol (evidence of the first ever beer has recently been discovered along with wine). iii) Astronomy (again, think about the Pyramids at Giza and how they align with Orion). iv) Astrology (evidence has been recovered of the zodiac signs tombs). v) Writing (although they may not have actually invented writing, they certainly aided its development). vi) Funeral Traditions (think embalming, the whole momentous funeral procession).
Answer The simple answer is that it doesnt. However, modern Britain has little in common with ancient Britain either. Of course, both countries claim their respective lands treasures such as the Sphinx (Egypt) or Stonehenge (Britain). If we contrast Britain with Egypt, the ancient word for a bird trap in Egypt, or skeet , is also the word used in England to describe a clay pigeon shooting range. The English word south is the same in ancient Egyptian – sut or sud . Such things are perhaps rare but they do show that ancient Egypt had connections with ancient Britain as the modern nations do. In fact, a century ago, Britain ruled or administered Egypt. So the answer is not so simple. It might therefore be easier to look at some aspects of modern Egypt that ancient Egypt did not have. Perhaps the most obvious contrast to compare is the religion of ancient and modern Egypt. Today, Islam, and to a lesser extent some Christianity, is the religion of Egypt. But Islam has only been significant in Egypt for 1400 years since Mohammad. Some Muslims will say that Islam means righteous so that many Egyptians well before Mohammad were also righteous and therefore Islamic. Does that mean the people who worshipped the many gods of ancient Egypt were righteous? In ancient Egypt, the sun god Ra was popular but across the Red Sea in Arabia, the moon was a god. That is because the Arabs lived their working lives at night to avoid the heat of the day so they worshipped the moon. But in Egypt, with its mighty river and cool shading trees, the sun was far less harsh and dramatic and much more popular as an object of reverence. Today, the moon is the main symbol on the flags of Muslim countries (but not Egypts). Egypt today probably has a much larger proportion of people who are not religious at all as their somewhat neutral flag suggests. The popular uprisings in Egypt stem from the problems of competing philosophical and religious ideas. This is something ancient and modern Egypt probably share. One of the great philosophical questions facing the Egyptians of 586 BC was the total routing, sacking, razing and near-total depopulation of ancient Israel by Nebuchadnezzar the Chaldean-Babylonian. Many people at the time believed the Seed of the Woman Programme, first announced in the Bible when Adam and Eve received Gods prophecy of the outcome of their disobedience in the Garden of Eden, had been abandoned after Israels demise in 586 BC. The Egyptian king at the time, Merneptah Baenre Meriamun Hotephirmaat, or Pharaoh Hophra of Jeremiah 44:30 in the Bible, recorded on a stone stele, Israels Seed is destroyed (or castrated); the Land razed (or shaved) to the ground. After Jesus of Nazareth was born (7-6 BC), many Egyptians repented and believed again in the Promise of the Seed after Jesus resurrection (30 AD). Thus much of Egypt became Christian between 30-650 AD. Then the Muslims conquered Egypt resulting in many Egyptians turning to Islam because of the corruption in the state church systems of the time. Mohammads reforms were often preferred over his revised theology. A parallel thing happened after Luther in Europe (1600 AD). But problems do not just exist in religions. The academics in the universities believe Merneptah ruled Egypt in 1210 BC when he was supposed to have written the Israel or Merneptah Stele. This contributor understands the Merneptah Stele is now on prominent display in the Cairo Museum in a similar fashion to the Rosetta Stone in the British Museum near the main entrance (although we stand to be corrected regarding the Cairo museum). However, that is perhaps the most interesting comparison between ancient and modern Egypt – their policy and attitude towards Israel their neighbour across (as Australians and New Zealanders say) the ditch (Reed Sea, Red Sea, Suez Canal). Israel and Egypt, such close neighbours, their histories so closely entwined, according to the Bible. Yet modern historians say the Merneptah Stele is the only or first reference in ancient Egyptian literature to the Jewish nation whose history is so carefully outlined in the Bible. In modern Egypt, Israel is in the news lots of times. Apparently, according to Egyptologists and historians, the opposite was the case. And there lies a big tale. By not knowing what Egypts history really was, as that conundrum must surely attest, it is almost impossible to answer this question. But it is an important question and if the answer were properly and thoroughly canvassed we might actually learn something. Probably, many people will be rather shocked to say the least. *but not Egypts
How did buildings in ancient Egypt influence ancient Egypt?
No. The two terms refer to almost completely different regions and times, though the influence of what we call Ancient Greece certainly extended to portions of what had, at one time, been Ancient Egypt. Greece was not located in ancient Egypt. It is in southwestern Europe, across the Mediterranean Sea from Egypt in northern Africa. The ancient Greeks were among the first modern societies to study the ancient history of Egypt. Many of the translations of hieroglyphics are based on the Rosetta Stone, which had text written in both hieroglyphic form and in Ancient Greek.

What where the advantages of the location of ancient Egypt?
Nomads settled in Egypt because of the rich fertile soil, caused by the annual floods of the Nile River. It was also easily protected, not easily invaded. Settlers arrived in the southern portion of the Nile delta some 6-7 thousand years ago, approximately 4500 B.C. It is assumed that these were nomadic tribes, similar to the Bedouin, that had wandered for miles seeking fertile land. The Nile, not only a provider of water and food, but also a means of transportation, instantly became a haven for all desert tribes in the area. Its rich resources were the foundation of an ancient religion and a powerful empire. Egypt was composed of two kingdoms, Upper and Lower Egypt. Upper Egypts pharaoh wore the White Crown while Lower Egypts pharaoh wore the red. After the unification of the two kingdoms, the crowns were joined as one, and all depictions after this period show not only the pharaohs but also the gods such as Osiris and Anubis wearing the combined crown. Ancient Egypts pharaoh held his capitol in Thebes, the ancient name for Luxor. Modern Egypts capitol is Cairo, approximately 500 miles north of Luxor situated near the Nile Delta and the Giza Plateau, where the pyramids are. Because they could grow their crops with the Nile Rivers help, and because they were able to built canals and boats there. What is now called Egypt was founded as a colony by Nubians, led by Asar, Egypts first ruler, whom the ancient Greeks later called Osiris. After death he was deified and became a god. He was part of the historys first holy trinity featuring Aset and Heru, whom the Ancient Greeks later called Isis and Horus. Exploration was the reason these Nubians settled in what is now Egypt.

What is the most ancient artifact in ancient Egypt?
A large 2,400 year old gorgeous turquoise colored faience/composition amulet of the ancient Egyptian God of Wisdom, Learning, and Measurements, Thoth. The baboon, being Thoths sacred animal, is construed as at least an indirect reference to Thoth. But the baboon was also a manifestation of Khonsu, who like Thoth was a moon god, but unlike Thoth, was but a minor deity in the Ancient Egyptian Pantheon. There was also a baboon god in the Early Dynastic period named Hedjwer, The Great White One, who became closely linked with Thoth. Predating Hedjwer, there was also a pre-dynastic baboon deity known as Baba, a very aggressive deity representing male virility. As well, Hapy, the son of Horus who guarded the canopic jar that held the lungs, had the head of a baboon. You can see that baboon was a popular manifestation of a number of deities, though inarguably the most significant of these was Thoth, and given the time frame, was most likely a representation of Thoth. The amulet is fairly large (as such amulets go), and is quite distinctive and handsome. The amulet possesses sharply molded features, and is exceptionally well preserved. The depiction is of a squatting baboon, wearing at least a wig, probably a royal nemes headcloth. This is a well-preserved amulet, certainly not the normal specimen, which often has been reduced to a crudely featured lump by the passage of millennia. It is well detailed and a very artistic rendition of a baboon. The amulet has survived almost 2,400 years of burial without any cosmetically or structurally significant chips, breaks, or cracks; the amulet is in very good condition. The amulet is mounted onto a necklace of sequentially-strung, blue-green tubular mummybeads also constructed of faience. The tubular faience beads are between 15 and 30 millimeters (3/4 – 1 1/4 inches) in length, and about 3 millimeters (1/8th inch) inch in diameter. The disk-shaped beads used as accent separators are considerably older, likely origin before 1,000 B.C. The necklace is 75cm (30 inches) in length; large enough to fit over anyones head, and is designed to suspend the amulet mid-chest. It is quite an impressive combination, and can be worn with elegance and distinction.
