  • World History -

    Egypt was important to the Europeans in the 19th century because it controlled access from the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea and on to the Indian Ocean. The construction of the Suez Canal opened this narrow stretch of land between the two seas and permitted cheaper and more efficient shipping between Europe and India and beyond.
