Unit Description

The Egyptians settled in the Nile River Valley of northeast Africa. Although historians believe the Egyptians most likely borrowed ideas such as writing from the Sumerians, recent findings lead some to believe that Egyptians and Mesopotamians developed writing independent of one another. However, the Egyptian civilization lasted for far longer than the city-states of Mesopotamia. While the people of Mesopotamia fought among themselves, Egypt grew into a rich, powerful, and unified kingdom. the Egyptians built a civilization that lasted for more than 2,000 years and left a lasting influence on the world.
