U is for Upper Egypt
Just a short one today.
|Taken from here|
- Upper Egypt is a narrow strip of land, and extends from modern day Aswan (at the bottom of the map) to just south of modern day Cairo.
- Upper Egypt was more isolated than Lower Egypt. It is located along the Nile Valley, and there are steep cliffs at either side. Therefore Lower Egypt had more dealings with the world, and therefore that's where the culture came from.
- The two areas had many differences in the ancient world. They spoke different dialects, had different customs, needs and interests. These differences, and the tensions created by them, still exist in modern times.
