Amenophis III

Ask Amenophis:

  In which part of Egypt did papyrus grow?  
  Is the Nile the largest river in the world?  
  What did Egyptians drink?  
Amenophis says:

All the gold in Egypt belonged to Pharaoh.

Being a soldier was a specialized occupation. Soldiers were active in the army for 20 years or more.

Egyptians ate grain, vegetables, and some meat. Bread was the staple food and onions the favorite vegetable.
