New Kingdom Egypt

The Old Kingdom (2649-210 BCR) was the first of the three great pharaonic eras of Ancient Egypt.

The pharaoh became all-powerful, with supreme control over Egypt's politics, religion and military.

The River Nile with its annual inundation was the life-blood of Egypt.

New Kingdom Egypt (16th to 11th Century BCE) saw the development of the "Warrior Pharaoh" image, the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt, and the flourishing of the Amun Re cult.
