For today’s (very short) entry, I’m just mentioning a little bit about Egypt during this period. I don’t have much detail yet, I just got here, but it’s a start on considering particular nations. Egypt was ruled by what is known as the Old Kingdom, which had actually begun a few hundred years before. The great Pyramids were built in this period. On further passes through history, I will be attempting to consider other civilizations of the Middle East.
