Q:The Old Kingdom, or Old Dynasty, of Egypt is considered the golden age of Egypt. Using specific examples, explain why.

A:The Old Kingdom, or Old Dynasty, of Egypt is considered the golden age of Egypt because of the monumental building efforts such as the funerary complex of King Djoser and the Pyramids at Giza as in the later dynasties in the Middle and New Kingdoms there was no time to undertake huge monumental building efforts (except in the case of Ramses the Great who built a huge monumental temple dedicated to himself) as Egypt was struggling to maintain its hold on their empire and was trying to keep the Greeks and later the Romans at bay from conquering Egypt

  3. Remove the word "As" at the beginning of the second sentence, and start with "In" -- otherwise, it doesn't make sense.

    At the end, "at bay" and "from..." are redundant. Choose one phrasing and omit the other.

    Put a period at the end of each sentence, and put a space after each period. Rephrase and re-post.
