6,000-year-old human remains place birth of civilization in the Delta
trefwoorden: Egypte - birthplace - civilization
Egyptian civilization is one of the oldest in history.
It is a civilization created by the minds, efforts and religious beliefs of an ancient people who were eager to observe religious rituals in the burial of their dead prompted by a strong belief in the afterlife.
Archaeologists however widely disagree on the birthplace of Egyptian civilization, although they mainly refer to Upper Egypt as the land from which it emerged.
Relatively speaking, information and antiquities found in the Delta are inferior to those from Upper Egypt.
But that is perhaps owing to problems such as the dominance of farmland in the Delta and rising underground water.
