What there Egypt forts are made of.....!

The Egyptians had to fortresses on on the eastern frontier and the other the by the cataract. 36 feet high!! and 15 feet thick i mean thats really high the whole fortress was 15 million mud bricks !

In the forts there was usually about 2000 troops and 3000 civilians.
When an army would lay seige on a fort they would camp out side of the fort for long periods of time so they would cut off there water supply and make the other force give up.


The first great rivals with the Egyptians were the Mitanni ( sounds like a big group of losers ) and they were they got there butt handed to them by the Hittites crushed em. So when that happened the Hittites became Egyptians most dangerous enemys. As the Asyrians formed they seeked help from the Hittites to destroy Egypt, they fought and fought and fought and fought and fought and fought and fought....................................................and fought and fought and fought and fought.......................................and i don't know what happend.

When Egypt concured lands they did not live there or make them change there customs or rule over them, they just made them pay tribute (tribute is when some one has to pay a sertian about to some one else every year, month, or 5 months the conquerer would make up they payment times). Sometimes Egyptians had to fight on the sea, there ships were make of wood planks. When some one fell out they would have to be helped out by some one with an ore, they would reach it down into the water and pull them up. If they took long then they might get ate'n by crocs
