Below we have an Egypt preview.
Watch the video about Ancient Egypt:National Geographic
Ancient Egypt was thought of as a land of two regions. The first was a part known as the “black land” and another called “red land.” These two lands were touched by the Nile River, the lifeblood of Ancient Egypt. The Egyptians called it the “black” land because of the dark silt that the river deposited on the banks after the annual flood receded. They knew the “red” land because it was nothing but red earth; a desert with nothing living in it.
The Nile and the Desert kept Egypt from being invaded and provided a way to sustain
life in the region. That is why Egypt became a large civilization, they were able to raise crops like barley and wheat, build temples from the mud of the river and create tombs from the stone that was widely available in the region.
