Facts about Giza pyramids

The people of Ancient Egypt created one of the world’s earliest and longest-lasting civilizations. It began in about 6000.B.C when farming villages spread along the banks of the Nile River. Eventually, two kingdoms were formed: Upper Egypt in the south and Lower Egypt in the north. In about 3100 BCE, the land was united when a king of Upper Egypt conquered the north. He was called the pharaoh and was seen as a living god. The Egyptians built the first large stone buildings, including massive pyramid tombs for their pharaohs and temples for their many gods. They invented a writing system called hieroglyphs, and, like a river people, they made almost all their journeys by boat. Life in Egypt continued with few changes for almost 3,000 years.
