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.


  1. That as really good information and the fortresses were huge..... i mean 36 feet high and 15 feet thick! Nice Job Buddy!:)

  2. Wow! That must of taken a lot of work for the Egyptians. I mean, 15 million mud bricks! You also gave a lot of information about the topic:)
