More than 3,500 years, Rome was no more than a soggy marsh and the Acropolis was an empty rock, but Egypt was on the verge of its greatest age – the New Kingdom.

There was an explosion of creativity, wealth and power in Egypt, which would make it the envy of the world. After defeating the Hyksos invaders, successive Pharaohs expanded and maintained their empire by force and diplomacy.

In the process, which Egypt won large amounts of gold, influence and respect. Among them, Ahmose, Hatshepsut, Thutmose III, Amenhotep III, Akhenaten, Tutankhamun and Ramesses III. Behind the power of the Egyptian empire had a wealth of natural resources.

Chief among them was the Nile River, the highway of the ancient world, whose flood plains also provided huge tracts of fertile agricultural land that Egypt maintains self-sufficient and usually without hunger. Along the banks of the Nile, the humble papyrus plant used to create a bureaucratic efficiency and cultural sophistication unknown to mankind.
