What is happening in Egypt in 2500BCE

The civilization of Ancient Egypt in 2500 BCE is now fully developed and producing some of the most iconic monuments in world history.

The Old Kingdom of Ancient Egypt

Within the long, narrow valley of the river Nile, powerful chiefdoms fought and conquered each other in the centuries leading up to 3000 BCE, until one emerged to cover the entire land.

Ancient Egypt in 2500 BCE belongs to the period known to modern scholars as the “Old Kingdom”.

The kingdom is governed by a ruling class of officials and priests. This group directs the lives of the people in the name of the pharaohs, god-kings who rule from their capital, Memphis.

The Great Pyramids of Giza

Even by this early date the Egyptians have developed one of the great civilizations of the ancient world. The Great Pyramids of Giza, some of the most famous structures in all human history, have already been built, and sculptors are producing statues which will set the standard for Ancient Egyptian art for centuries to come.
