This paper relates that the author would have liked to live in the ancient Egyptian society because its people were dedicated to farming, architecture and culture, which made this area one of the most fascinating places on Earth. Life in ancient Egypt revolved around the beautiful Nile River and the fertile land around its banks, the author points out. The paper describes the people of ancient Egypt as very family oriented, diverse culturally and highly respectful of women and children.
From the Paper:"The architecture of ancient Egypt was beautiful. There were many pyramids and other architectural structures that made ancient Egypt very unique from other communities. Some of the structures that could be seen during the ancient Egyptian era include the Sphinx, the pyramids of Giza, and the fortresses. These were all beautiful structures that made ancient Egypt a beautiful place to raise a family. The Egyptian people generally used mud, brick and stone to construct their buildings and it was through the use of these materials that many of the structures from ancient Egypt still remain today."
