When the pharoahs in Memphis became weak many nobles rose up to take the place of these pharoahs. Finally a new dynasty of pharoahs came into control and this started what is called the Golden Age in Egypt, the Middle Kingdom. They moved the capital from Memphis south to Thebes. During the Middle Kingdom Egypt conquered many lands and expanded there teritory. More chanels for irragation were built and farming fields expanded to grow more food. Also the pharoahs consturcted a canal that connected the Nile river with the Red Sea so they can send goods south down the Red Sea then out towards Arabia. After a period of peace Egyptians started to rebel against the pharoahs and fell into vilence. With Egypt being weak the Hyksos captured them fighting on horse back. Which gave them the advantage over the Egyptians
