Geography of Egypt


Egypt is the offspring of the River Nile, whose waters and rich silts provided the basis for the development of one of the world’s first great civilizations, that of ancient Egypt, with a recorded history dating back to about 3200 bc. The History section below covers Egypt from ancient times, including the Dynastic Period (3000 bc-332 bc), the Hellenistic Period (332 bc-30 bc), Roman and Byzantine rule (30 bc-ad 642), the Caliphate and the Mamelukes (642-1517), Ottoman domination (1082-1882), and British colonialism (1882-1952), as well as modern, independent Egypt (1952 to the present). © "Egypt" © Emmanuel Buchot and Encarta
