    Ancient Egypt

    There are over 2,000 gods in Ancient Egypt.Here are some gods and their names-

    Ra was the god of the sun,he was a important god because he was the king of all the gods.

    Tefnut was the Goddess of the rain and had the head of lioness.

    Geb was a earth god.The Ancient Egyptians believed that earthquakes were Gebs laughter,Geb had the head of a goose.

    Amun was the king of the gods. When Amun was combined with the sun god Ra , Ra was even more powerful.He was then called Amun-Ra.

    These are some of the 2,000 gods in Ancient Egypt.

    Clothes – Egypt is a hot country so people wear light-weighted clothes. Ancient Egyptian clothes covered most of their skin and were made from plant fibres such as linen

    Pharaohs-Pharaohs are the most important and powerful person in the kingdom.He was the head of the government and high priest of every temple in Ancient Egypt.People think that Pharaohs are half god and half king or queen. Pharaoh are kings and queens.

      Great research. I enjoyed reading your facts. Remember that pharaohs lived a long time ago so when we write about them, we need to use the past tense.

  4. A Ahmed says:

    The scarab beetle is a real beetle, a common beetle. To the ancient Egyptians, this common beetle symbolized hope and the restoration of life. They used the design of a scarab beetle in many ways.

  6. A Ahmed says:

    Egyptians used Canopic jars for holding mummified remains. Egyptians put a dead persons body parts like its liver, lungs and stomach inside a canopic jar.

  7. M Ismail says:

    River Nile -The river Nile is the most famous river in ancient Egypt.The tempreture in Egypt is really high compared to Braford. There is lots and lots of sand. That is how you can tell that it is hot. The pyramids are very high. Also by the time you will be up there you will be dying for water. There are also palm trees in Egypt. There are easy to climb. Under sand there is water to drink. There is a beach in Egypt and there are lots of pam trees near the beach. There are also some wells to drink from so you don’t get thirsty.

    1 In Ancient Egypt people used to wear old clothes like white shawls around their legs and they didn’t wear anything on the body because they weren’t rich enough to buy anything like clothes. In Ancient Egypt there was an enormous pyramid and on the front it had a huge human face.When people were dead in Ancient Egypt they had to wear death masks because when you die all your skin comes off and if you wore the speical death mask then that will make you and your skin look alive.
    2 Pyramids have been in Egypt for a long time. They are made from sandstone and inside the pyramids there is just straight paths. People think that tombs and coffins are in them but its not true.
    3 Jewellery – .The people in ancient Eygpt were very fond of jewellery.They would make their slaves dig deep down to get gold,diamond,silver and other valuable items and rocks.
    4 Pharaoh’s are the king of egypt.Pharaoh is another word for the king of egypt.They are normally nasty and cruel.They have lots of slaves to do all of their work and lots of free gold,gems and rubies.
    5 Mummies – In ancient Eygpt when people died they would wrap the body in paper.They put a liquid on the paper so the dead body would stay moisturised and then they would put it in a coffin.
    6 In the picture I can see palm trees in the sand on the end of the beach.
    7 I can see some huge black mountins in the middle of no where in Egypt.In the backrond there are some more mountains which are coverd in snow and I think there is some sea.
    8 The River Nile is the largest river in the whole wide world.It’s in Egypt .
    9 The capital of Egypt is Cairo.

    River Nile -The river Nile is the most famous river in ancient Egypt. Moses was in a basket and his mum but the basket on the river hoping that he will live.His mum did
    that because pharaoh had a dream that someone was going to kill him so he killed every single baby.Crocadiles lived in the river Nile.

    Pharaoh- The Pharaoh’s son died in the tenth plague. Pharaoh tried to kill moses because he made a new religion and he said that Pharaoh was not a god , that he was just a man. He was the most powerful man in the whole of ancient Egyptian history. King Pharaoh was the cruelest and meanest man in Egypt.
    Pyramids- Pyramids are made by sand stone because if it was made by sand only it would collapse.Inside a pyramid it is very narrow and dim.Somtimes slaves used to sleep in pyramids but, it was really small inside.Pyramids are small inside but outside they are really big and tall . They have small tunnels inside.Slaves used to make these pyramids.
    Mummies -After Pharoahs died, people used to take their brains out and they wraped them up with tissue. Then people put the dead body in coffins.

    Pyramids
    Pyramids are mostly made out of sandstone because if pyramids were made out of normal sand it would automatically collapse.Inside a pyramid we think there is completely nothing, except a dark narrow and short tunnel. From the outside it is enourmous and solid.
    Bodies
    When the egyptions died we think they took their brain out of their nose and they hid it in a dark small cave,.Also when they died they got put into a box that looked liked a coffin.
    Men and women
    The rich Egyptians like the women and men wore shiny jewellery but, the poor ones had to wear old ragged clothes that were torn .
    Mummies
    Mummies were real dead people that got wrapped up into some bandages. The Egyptions were wrapped up for thousands of years and kept safe.

    I haven’t started my topic yet but this is what I already know.
    CLOTHES
    People in the ancient Egyptian times use to wear clothes wrapped around their bodies. For the boys they wore white sheets and girls wore dresses up to there ankles and sleeves up to their elbows.
    JEWELLERY
    Their jewllery was made out of real gold. The Pharoah was really rich so he had quite
    a lot of gold. The Pharoahs wife could wear it all and they wore golden crowns with animals on them.
    WRITING
    They wrote and carved their names and words in stone and gold which to us looks like
    symbols. Pharoas wrote with fancy pens and sent it with pigions or other types of birds.

    Ancient Egypt:
    Pyramaids:Pyramaids are made out of sand and some have the pharaohs faces on. Inside the pyramaids there are lots of pictures around the walls and they mean something. There are also the mummies which are buried inside the pyramaids. Some have their ashes in. I think that the pharaohs used to live and stay at the very top of the pyramaids.
    River Nile:The River Nile is a huge river which is red because of the ten plagues which happened many many years ago. The river Nile is joined onto the gulf of Seuz. The River Nile is a very famous river in Egypt
    Slaves: The slaves were very poor and were very hard working and were still not treated well. Many of them suffered from not much food and died. We think that the slaves were usually jews because the Egyptians hated them.
