TEXTS: Papyrus didn't decay so lots of writing was found. They found writing about medical issues, religous cerimonies, royal elite, scientific dicoveries, and much more.

Egyptian Writing:Their earliest writing was in 3300 BC writen on stone or clay. Then the Egyptians developed PAPYRUS. Papyrus was a paper made from flatened reeds. This was extremly important because it was not as fragile as clay. Clay would get squished easily, and papyrus wouldn't. They also developed heiroglifics. This alphabet has 600 symbols. It was a combonation of individual or groups of sounds. The writing was "flexible" so it was difficult to read.

Art: The Egyptian painting were usually detailed and extremly interacate in tombs and temples. The paintings were not only in tombs, but also on canvas, papyrus, pottery, plaster and wood. Only elite and roylty were able to see the art. The paintings also told stories about an event. The artists even followed rules. For example, the pharoahs were much larger then anyone else in the picture, and people's heads and legs needed to be at an angle, but the torso is straight forward.

Temples:The temples were most famous beside temples, because the gods were burried there. They had Sphinxes in rows, and obelisks that were on each side of the gate. The gate gaurded the entrance to the temples. In the temples they had lavish decorations such as the interacate heiroglifics painted on the walls. The temple's most important part was at the back.
