TheВ NileВ riverВ wasВ aВ significantВ geographicВ factorВ thatВ contributedВ toВ theВ developmentВ ofВ Egypt. В ItВ wasВ instrumentalВ inВ attractingВ andВ maintainingВ populationsВ inВ thisВ ancientВ civilization. В TheВ riverВ isВ aВ sourceВ ofВ waterВ whichВ isВ essentialВ toВ allВ life.

В TheВ HyskosВ broughtВ theВ chariotВ toВ EgyptВ alongВ withВ toolsВ andВ weaponsВ andВ usedВ themВ inВ orderВ toВ gainВ control.
