A historical and cultural atlas of ancient Egypt for children. The landscape and climate of Egypt had a fundamental influence on the development of ancient Egyptian culture, civilization and thought. The river Nile became a vital transport artery - the hieroglyph for 'travelling north/south' was a boat. The annual Nile flood made agriculture possible in this otherwise desert country and formed the basis of Egypt's wealth and power.
