The ancient civilization which flourished in Egypt is among the most powerful in the world. It took place about three millenniums ago, around 3150 BC. Trade and agriculture were the industries which thrived on Nile River’s banks in ancient Egypt. Egyptians were blessed with a golden period when the pharaohs ruled their country during the Initial years. The pharaohs’ rule ended during 31 BC which resulted in the decline of Egyptian civilization. The Roman Empire conquered such civilization. The Nile River did control not merely the agricultural industry but as well as the social life and culture of the people.
The pyramids are among the wonders that the ancient world has given. They were constructed as burial places for the queens and pharaohs. A pyramid is also believed to be a symbolic stairway for a pharaoh’s soul to leave for the heavens. The Step Pyramid of Djoser is among the oldest pyramids in Egypt. Djoser is a pharaoh who ruled Egypt 4,600 years ago. This structure features corridors that will lead to the funeral chamber. The entrance and burial chamber of this pyramid are sealed with granite. Fine limestone covers the entire surface of this pyramid. Other world- famous Egyptian pyramids include Necropolis and the Great Pyramid at Giza.
Pharaohs were considered by Egyptians as gods on the planet and incarnation of gods. Throughout the history of Egypt, there were over thirty dynasties ruled by pharaohs. The father handed the throne over to his son. Nevertheless, there were times that the heir- apparent or next- in- line would either disappear mysteriously or be murdered. In this case, a new family would take over the kingdom’s control. The history of pharaohs of ancient Egypt is so complex. King Tut or Tutankhamen was among the most popular and remarkable ancient pharaohs of Egypt.
