Egypt is an Afro-Asiatic country located in the southwest edge and northeast of Africa. An Arabic speaking country that is the third largest in the whole of Africa, Egypt is an ancient monument with rich history, people and culture.
The ancient Egypt started from the early Predynastic settlements of the northern Nile Valley to 30 BC during the Roman conquest. Evidence of rock carvings was found around 10th millennium BC along the desert oases and the Nile terraces. As at 6000 BC, a Neolithic culture emerged in the Nile Valley and by 8000 BC climate changes and overgrazing dried up the land of Egypt. The modern Egypt is a total contrast from the ancient one.
