It is obviously challenging if the land on which you have built your home and grow your food gets flooded by a river every August and September, as the Nile used to do before the Aswan High Dam," explains Arthur Goldschmidt, Jr., a retired Penn State University professor of Middle East history and the author of A Brief History of Egypt. "Creating dikes, channels and basins to move and store some of the Nile waters required ingenuity and probably much trial-and-error experimentation for the ancient Egyptians." Christopher Morris, The Big Muddy: An Environmental History of the Mississippi and Its Peoples from Hernando de Soto to Hurricane Katrina (Oxford University Press, 2012). He has traveled to Egypt 54 times since 1980 and is currently director of the ASA Restoration Project, which is funding the excavation and restoration of the 25 thdynasty tomb of Karakhamun in Luxor, Egypt.

The Nile River Is One Of The Most Well-known Rivers In The World. The Nile River Valley Was Vital To The Success Of Several Ancient Civilizations. The Nile River Allowed The Earliest Civilizations To Flourish In Spite Of The Surrounding Harsh Desert Climate. The Nile River Valley Includes Not Just The River, But The Surrounding Banks And Low Lands That Benefit From The River Flooding. Ta-Seti was known as The Land Of The Bow which was the main weapon of the Nubians of Ta-Seti who established the first Egyptian Kemetic Civilization. Through IKG, Mr. Browder sponsors lectures, seminars, cultural field trips of Washington, D.C., publishes his research, and has conducted study tours to Egypt, West Africa, South Africa and Mexico since 1987. In Local Lore, The River Has Been Deemed As A Gift From The Gods, The Father Of Life And Mother Of All Men.

The Nile was such a focal point to the ancient Egyptians that their calendar began the year with the first month of the flooding. The Egyptian religion even venerated a deity of flooding and fertility, Hapy, who was depicted as a chubby man with blue or green skin. The area known as the Great Lakes region of East Africa contributed to world Civilization when it spawned what has been termed the Nile Valley Civilization.

You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in Like many scholars in his lifetime, Dr. Ben, documented the facts on Kemet by traveling extensively to North Afrika. He published his research in many books. Govindasamy Agoramoorthy, “Sacred Rivers: Their Spiritual Significance in Hindu Religion,” Journal of Religion and Health 54:3 (September 2014), 1080–1090.

By 3100 BC the Nile Valley and Delta had coalesced into a single entity that was the world's first large nation state. As well as providing the region's material potential, the Nile and other geographical features influenced political developments and were significant in the development of Egyptian thought.
