Facts about Egyptian Life:

The ancient Egyptians were fascinating people, and thanks to the movies, are often misunderstood. The ancient Egyptians were not in love with death, but with life! They enjoyed their life to the fullest. They worked hard, but enjoyed family, friends, music, parties, swimming, fishing, hunting, and sailing. Children were the heart of the family. If a couple could not have a child, they adopted a child. Children were taught to be kind and honest, to respect their parents, to help with the family business. Ancient Egyptians believed in "ma'at“ order & justice, so it was important that children learn to be caring The ancient Egyptians believed that you could only reach your afterlife if your heart was light. The only way your heart would be light is if you had spent a lifetime being kind and honest. Everyone, from the pharaoh on down, who made a mistake or lost their temper made up for it by doing good deeds to balance the scale. I think you'll be truly amazed at what you will discover about those creative, clever, curious, hard working, life-loving, game-creating, light-hearted people - the ancient Egyptians. I think you'll like them! Facts about Egyptian Life

Ancient Egypt’s Social Pyramid In Egypt there were definite social classes which were dictated by an Egyptian's profession. This social stratification was like a pyramid: ▲ At the bottom of the classes were slaves and farmers, or Peasants They represented the greatest percent of the Egyptian population. The workers supported the professionals above them, just as the base of the pyramid supports the rest of the structure. ▲ Above were skilled Craftsmen or Artisans ▲ Scribes ▲ Priests ▲ Nobles and the Vizier -they served as generals and administrators, and formed the government, or Government Officials ▲ At the top of the social status pyramid was the Pharaoh. He was not simply a ruler, but was considered a god on earth. The Pharaoh dictated every law, to his direct subordinates, who in turn transmitted them to the bottom of the pyramid.
