How did geography and climate affect where people lived in ancient Egypt?

  • World History -

    Egypt is a hot desert, and it's very difficult for humans to survive there.

    But running the full length of Egypt is the Nile River. It's water provides irrigration for crops near it. Also, until the Aswan Dam was built in the 20th century, the Nile flooded every year, bringing rich silt to the floodplain, thus enriching this agricultural land. The Nile also provides water for bathing and drinking plus transportation.
