Egiptian economy

Agriculture was focused on the cycle of the Nile and it had three seasons: Akhet, Peret, and Shemu. Akhet, the flood season, from June to September. The flood allow a rich land plein of nutrients. In Peret, the planting season between October and February, farmers waited until the water was drained, and they planted in the soil. Shemu followed the harvest season from March to May, when collected with wooden sickles.

Egypt's economy was based on agriculture. Life depended on the floods of the river Nile. They had a system of dikes, ponds and irrigation canals that irrigate all the fields. The grain was stored in barns and then used to make bread and beer. The main crops were wheat, barley and flax.
