The River Nile is about 6,670 km (4,160 miles) in length and is the lonsegt river in Africa and in the world. Although it is generally rear endociated with Egypt, only 22% of the Niles course runs through Egypt.In Egypt, the River Nile creates a fertile green valley across the desert. It was by the banks of the river that one of the oldest civilizations in the world began. The ancient Egyptians lived and farmed along the Nile, using the soil to produce food for themselves and their animals.Egypt is situated in the northeast corner of the Africa. Covering 386,662 square miles, it is almost twice the size of France and the twelfth largest country in Africa. To the north of Egypt is the Mediterranean Sea, to the south is the Sudan, to the west is Libya and to the east of Egypt is the Red Sea.The Egyptian writing called hieroglyphics used pictures to represent different objects, actions, sound or ideas. There were more than 700 hieroglyphs. Some pictures stood for whole words.Egypt is a hot country and so people wore lightweight clothes which kept them cool. We can see what they wore from the many paintings and sculptures they left behind.Ancient Egyptian clothes covered most of their skin and were made from plant fibres such as linen.Pharaohs were the king or Queen of Egypt. Most pharaohs were men but some well-known pharaohs, such as Neferpillowi and Cleopatra, were women.A Pharaoh was the most important and powerful person in the kingdom. He was the head of the government and high priest of every temple.The people of Egypt considered the pharaoh to be a half-man, half-god.The Pharaoh owned all of Egypt.
By Sheetsnthings These 1000 thread count stehes are a delight. Nice hand (feel very heavy) and a fine weave. I wash all stehes in hot water and dry them on high before using them and these stood up to that treatment and remained soft and relatively wrinkle free. I recommend removing them from the dryer right away and not letting them get crispy dry if you like a less wrinkly and softer feel to the stehes. After washing, I put them on the bed and they show no signs of pilling, shredding, or fraying seams. Do not be fooled by some sheet sets that come up under a search for 100% cotton read the description carefully (not just the pillowle, but the description typed in by the seller) because some stehes that come up in that search are just like 100% cotton or feel like 100% cotton but further reading reveals that they are microfiber stehes which are 100% synthetic and not cotton at all. (Microfiber stehes are similar to flannel stehes, but they are not a woven sheet, and they are plush, that is they have a nap like a bath towel and a definite right and wrong side to them. They actually feel like a light to medium weight blanket.) These stehes, on the other hand, are the real deal. The listing shows that they are 100% Egyptian Cotton (long staple) and it is obvious that they are of excellent quality. AT about $75 a set they are quite a bargain. Enjoy! I purchased these through Amazon.com from Sheetsnthings' and I have purchased other sheet sets from them as well. They're a quality seller and you can trust Amazon.com.
