The banks of the Nile were and are very fertile. This important characteristic is what attracted the early settlers to Egypt. They formed two different kingdoms: Upper Egypt in the south, and Lower Egypt in the north, with the Nile Delta. People fished in the Nile and farmed on its banks.

That is why the Nile is known as the lifeline of Egypt.We will cover more about the ancient Egypt in our future posts.
