Amenophis III

Ask Amenophis:

  What did Egyptians eat?  
  Were animals mummified, too?  
  Who was the first Pharaoh whose name we know?  
Egypt was called the "Gift of the Nile". The Nile river flooded yearly, bringing rich new earth to the fields. This made Egypt one of the most fertile places on Earth. The richness of the agricultural harvest gave Egypt the riches, and the security, to build the great monuments that still attract travelers today.
