Right away, it changed into a burning desert, developing, leaving dead yields a short time later, seeking after the farmers to the Oases where they became deserted like destroyed survivors. Many searched for shelter in the Nile, a flexible stream that the Sahara couldn’t interminable stock of its standard flooding. For the overcomers of the Sahara, the Nile was no paradise.

When the rising waters died down, the land deserted was productive appreciation to residue in the water. Orchestrating their lives around the flooding of the Nile, the out of date Egyptians segregated their year into three seasons: the inundation, the turn of events, and the harvest.
