Nile River

 Related Terms

• Old Kingdom


Definition: Lifeblood of Egyptian civilization. This river gave the Egyptians water for their crops and for the lives as a whole. It flooded every year, roughly at the same time; and each time, it left rich, new soil for new crops. The Egyptians also used the Nile for trade, as trading boats traveled to and from Egypt.
