The picture that is being depicted on the paper given is the Nile Rive It is founded in the north of Africa, it is the longest river in Africa and possible the world. This river creates a fertile land which is great for farming and from this fertile land it allowed ancient Egyptians to have a large amount of food for both there friends, families, and for trade. From this the Nile river became one of the oldest civilizations in the world to began. The fertile soil allowed the ancient Egyptian to use the soil to produce food for themselves and their animals; farming was very poplar in ancient Egypt especially along the Nile River. The gift of the Nile when you first read the title the gift of the Nile your are some what confused well if not I was I had to think deeply to myself why would Egypt be considered the gift of the Nile. Then a light went of in my head Egypt is considered the Gift of the Nile because of its effects it has on the people that leave near by and use this river for there ever day usage. The Nile over its banks yearly and floods every thing that’s in its path from the flood new soil but appear with is know as top soil from this the Egyptian plants would grow plentiful. Herodotus statement is very true reason being without the Nile River and its yearly flooding of its banks agriculture would have been possible impossible due its Egypt location and human civilization wouldn’t have been possible as well because there plants and vegetables would have been much less likely to develop and flourish.
