Compare and Contrast China and Egypt
Have you ever wondered what it was like in ancient times? How they dress, what they did, and what were their rules? These are questions people ask themselves or each other every day. This essay will focus on the come up of China and Egypt and a few things they did to get their civilization off the ground. There are many similarities between the two civilizations.

They use the floods for food, bathroom use, and showering purposes. The downfall of all of this is that it will wipe out everything in the way if it happens to flood too much throughout the entire country. The good part about it is that it doesn't flood that much in neither civilization. They have many differences between them as well. One difference is that they built different things for different reasons. China for example, they built the Great Wall of China. In case you didn't know, the Great Wall of China was built between 1368-1644 and is still standing today. The reason for the Great Wall being built was to keep invaders outside from trying to coming in and attempting to take over. if it wasn't...
