Ancient Egypt


I don't know where to begin:
First Vessled boat found, largest and oldest structures on the face of the planet at the time, alignment of their world wonders with Orion, invention of a the first calendar of 365 days, invention of Makeup, stone carvings, even better metal carvings into the shape of gods and pharaohs. Not to mention advancement in math, engineering, and medicine from surgeries on brains to fixing broken bones and treating migraines. Nonetheless all the mysteries that hasn't been answers just as the art of mummification, building massive structures that are still standing and in better conditions than other ancient structures that were built after. Lastly, the capability of writing and drawing in narrow tunnels and tombs that are way underground and way far from any source of light. How did they do it? There is no way they used candles because the level of oxygen is low in these passageways and tunnels that will turn off the flame. Even torches will smoke up these ...more

Who in the world would put Greece above Egypt. 3000 years! A NATION for 3000 years. Greece hasn't been around for half of that and wasn't a country for even one tenth of that! The irony is, the only reason they were ever conquered by Rome is because of a stupid love triangle between world leaders. Even so they outlasted Greece when Rome came along by 100 years. On a side note: Athens, founded by an Egyptian.

Oh and Ancient Egypt was not a slave based society like Ancient Greece. The pyramids were built by PAID WORKERS who were citizens. Also, Ancient Greece was VERY sexist. Ancient Egypt was the first civilization to give women the same rights as men! Vikings would follow suit many millennia later. Please vote for Ancient Egypt because this civilization is the pinnacle of all civilizations. This Jewel of the Sahara built the ONLY remaining wonder of the ancient world. All the Ancient Greek wonders are I don't know, GONE! Thanks!

They were so beyond there times and even beyond ours. The only things we have to explain how they created what they did are theories leading to more dead ends. Their feats in astrology, mathematics, engineering, dense stone carving, and much more are completely unexplainable and we don't even really know for sure how far their culture even went back. We also cannot replicate their accomplishments in our modern day.

Ancient Egyptians were by far one of the best civilizations. They created their own writing system, hieroglyphics, built the first finished stone building (Zoser's Step Pyramid), and excelled in art, medicine, architecture, and painting. The ancient Egyptians also conquered many nations and gained wealth from trading partners. Ancient Egyptians were polytheistic and believed in an eternal afterlife. Their religion was very important in daily life. The Nile river supported Ancient Egypt. Without it there would have been no Egypt.

BEcause they laid the foundation for which all other civilizations developed their own. They were the first people to come up with such technological advancements in areas such as geometry, science, astronomy, astrology and many others. Their ancient religion was and is the basis for all the current major religions of the world. Though the latter now exists as a perversion of the former, it still stands without doubt to the fact that the first teachers of the world were indeed this ancient people of Kamit.

I think nominating Ancient Greece as the top civilization would be a mistake. The Egyptians invented many things we still use today. So please do some research and read all the amazing things they did. It is the top civilization,

Its very interesting we learned about it and it was pretty interesting how ducks lived in deserts but there is still the Nile River so they pretty much have water. There are also lots of more interesting things about Ancient Egypt so I say vote for Ancient Egypt

The Egyptians were by far the greatest people as they were far ahead of their time with monuments that still to this day baffle modern science and engineers as to how they were built. The oldest established people and yet the ones who still to this day have the most discoveries on going, They have also shown themselves to be the basis of almost all of the civiliazations,

Ancient Egyptians are cool because they have a cool number system which is made of Hieroglyphs. They built pyramids, temples, and obelisks. They also have a practical and effective system of medicine. They also had irrigation systems and agricultural techniques. They also had the first known ships.

Ancient Egypt MUST BE NUMBER 1! Not only are Egyptians really smart and nice people, they also have a great and famous city. The country is unique and has great history. Egypt is older than China and Greece! Maybe even the oldest country ever! I love Egypt!

Please put this in number 1!

I don't know why Egypt isn't first. Greece was very influential, but it took a lot of its knowledge from other civilizations. Egypt was very old and influential. Also where is Sumer, it was the first?

There is no other ancient civilization that conveys as much a sense of mystery, power, and awe, as much as ancient Egypt. Even though Greece was an amazing civilization, I don't think they deserve the top spot, their culture and knowledge is largely taken from Egypt when Hellenism took hold in Alexandria and brought home the Egyptian way of life. Furthermore, I see many people talk of Democracy in Ancient Greece, I think this is fairly illogical, while they did have democracy it was only for land owning men. Their freedom was a lie.

One of the oldest civilizations that has roots that date back 40000 years ago Oldest united country/ political system. Invented writing/ paper. Fathers of philosophy, mathematics, engineering, chemistry, astrology/ astronomy and medicine. All western alphabets are descended from Egyptian hieroglyphs. - NadermunRa

Egypt still has 75% of the monuments in the world the largest ancient monuments.. But still aren't discovered yet.. Still a lot of things to be known.. nobody figured or knew how they did everything... Not like other civilisations

Best by far much better than the Greece they created ancient pyramids before many thing were invented like a crane and etc but the most surprising part is how the found how pyramids are useful

Ancient Egypt is a very mysterious civilization and still is. That's why it's so interesting and magnificent. That's why it's number two out of the top ten civilizations. I know I did a project on ancient Egypt.

Just look at all Egypt has done. They created the pyramids, the oldest standing structure of that size and built not one but many each one different in size. They also built the pyramids as almost like a compass, each corner facing a direction. They survived a very long time through nearly the first civilization to the beginning of Rome. They conquered and was conquered a fair amount of times and got wealthy from trading with the African poeple with salt and gold. Their religion still has an effect on today through many factors and has even inspired the writer of "Percy Jackson and the Olympions" to write a series on the relegion as well.

Simply the best civilization existed with a lot of wonders that makes you spend your whole life without being bored to study about. Still a lot of information in unrevealed and need to be dig in.

I think that Egypt is the best civilisation, not only has it lived the longest but has made the fantastic pyramids

Ancient Egypt is a very unique civilization. It basically was the start of all civilizations. It is simply the best civilization on the face of the world (in my opinion). It was very advanced in many things.

Ancient Egyptians invented so many war tools and science originated from them, they r simply the best civilization ever

I think it is an awesome civilization.I have also researched Ancient Egypt and I think it is the coolest place ever!

Egypt has still a lot of tombs that are undiscovered and it has the most ancient golds in the world.
Egypt as been alive for more then 3000 years and made the pyramids back then that still stand now half of Greece fell but Egypt's ancient merchandise still stands!
