location and charisteristics
The Nile has two major tributes, the White Nileand Blue nile.The latter is the source of most of the water and fertile soil. The former is the longer. The White Nile rises in the Greast lakes region of central Africa, with the most distant source being as-yet undetermined, and located in either rwanda or Burundi.It goes for 6695 kilometers in port said it begins.
The northern section of the river flows almost entirely through destert, from Sudan into Egypt, a country whose civilization has depended on the river since ancient times. Most of the population and cities of Egypt lie along those parts of the Nile valley north of Aswan, and nearly all the cultural and historical sites of Acient Egypt are found along riverbanks. The Nile ends in a large delta that empties into the Mediterranean Sea.

Importance
The Nile is very important, lots of tourist come to see the sight on the bank of the Nile because most of the famous structures are on the Nile river bank.
It is also very important because without it people would not get enough water.
The Nile is a place also for trading so ships need to come in to give the items to the tourist.

wild life
There is a very important speices that live in the Nile River such as the Nile crocodile It is indangerd and it can only be found in the blue Nile and the delta Nile.The Nile crocodile eats birds fish and people they have killed over 350 people in the past 5 year.

Alexander levendi history
The Greek historian Herodotus wrote that "Egypt was the gift of the Nile". An unending source of sustenance, it provided a crucial role in the development of Egyptian civilization. Silt deposits from the Nile made the surrounding land fertile because the river overflowed its banks annually. The Ancient Egyptians cultivated and traded wheat, flax and other crops around the Nile. Wheat was a crucial crop in the famine-plagued Middle East. This trading system secured Egypt's diplomatic relationships with other countries, and contributed to economic stability. Far-reaching trade has been carried on along the Nile since ancient times. The Ishango bone is probably an early tally stick. It has been suggested that this shows prime numbers and multiplication, but this is disputed. In the book How Mathematics Happened: The First 50,000 Years, Peter Rudman argues that the development of the concept of prime numbers could only have come about after the concept of division, which he dates to after 10,000 BC, with prime numbers probably not being understood until about 500 BC. He also writes that "no attempt has been made to explain why a tally of something should exhibit multiples of two, prime numbers between 10 and 20, and some numbers that are almost multiples of 10.

The Nile River is being over fished and poluted some scientist say that in 200 years time the water of the nile will be imposible to drink because
of polluting form farmers and construction sites.
The water quality now is very good and is very important for survival.

Reacreation
My river is very important for tourist to have fun people, like wind skinig on my river.

The Nile river


TheNile River is an amazing thing to have with its 6695 long body. TheNileriver also has one of the biggest basins in the world. A rive is a large body of water that has three stages young, mature, old.


Location

The location of the Nile River is in the middle of the Egyptian capital state Cairo and one of Egypt’s biggest cities Libya. The Nile River flows into the red sea which is 6695 miles down the river. There is a few major bridges on the Nile but definitely the largest is the Qasr El bridge , the bridge is exactly 1932 metres long and has made it on Egypt’s largest bridges. The Nile river does not lead into any lakes. The Nile river deepest point is 5, 940m. In a natural spring that pumps up the water 5, 940 m down. The widest part in the Nile river is 160km. The Greek word "Nile", meaning "river valley". In ancient Egyptian, the river was known as the "great river".

Characteristics

Of the Nile

The Nile River flows 6695 metres north and then turns into the red sea. The Nile River has some waterfalls on it but I bet you’ve heard of this one the Nigeria falls is on the Nile River 4567miles down the river the river stops at a dead end but is that going to stop the water no the water still flows down the dead end and flows off the side. The worst flood in the Nile River was in 2001 and it killed 200 people. You just have to remember they didn’t have dams on the Nile then. My river doesn’t freeze because it is to hot all year round. My river is affected by tides because every year there is a giant king tide and that floods the crops. The largest boat that could pass through the river as big as the Q2 because the river widest part is 160km and the Q2 is the biggest boat I’ve ever seen. The main dangers of the Nile river are definitely the Nile river crocodile and the electric eel if the electric eel wanted to eat the croc it will win because that electric eel is very electric.

In the Egyptian Sector of the river, wildlife was relatively small, consisting of small fish, Nile Crocodiles and some birds. Other wild mammals like lions became extinct. In the Nile you are allowed to fish all year round but there is the problem of over fishing in the waters. In the Egyptian end of the river there are some small fish species’ but when you get up to the top of the river there are a lot of fish species I just can’t get the names. The Nile has lots of birds that dive for fish in the Egyptian and Aswan parts some of these birds are kingfishers. The Nile river has a lot of man eating and life threatening fish and reptiles one of these fish is the electric eel one of the reptiles is the crocodile.


Transportation

People use the Nile River by boats canoes and all sorts of things that float. The Nile River do have some pass always near the Aswan dam and the Egyptian part of the river.


Recreation

The Nile people use all sorts of things for recreation like fishing boating and things like that. People cannot swim in the Nile River because there is a disease that can kill in the river. The Nile has lots of annual events but the biggest is the Nile boating competition.

Importance
The Nile River is very important for survival because the Nile is the man water source for miles. The Nile River is used for many commercial purposes like the dam on the Aswan part of the Nile. The role that my river plays is the water the Nile River has a water possessor so the water becomes clean and then people can drink the water. My river is not used for agriculture. The Nile River is used for water in the Aswan and Egyptian parts.
Water Quality
The river is way cleaner than it was 10 years ago because the bug has gone a bit. You can eat the fish if they are cooked of coarse. My river is sometimes polluted. The water in my river is recycled.
history


The river provided the principal source of protein The principal crops were cereals, emmer wheat for bread, and barley for beer. These diet staples were easily stored. Other vital plants were flax, which was used for products from rope to the finest linen cloth and was also exported, and papyrus, a swamp plant that may have been cultivated or gathered wild. Papyrus roots could be eaten, while the stems were used for making anything from boats and mats to the characteristic Egyptian writing material; this too was exported. A range of fruit and vegetables was cultivated. Meat from livestock was a minor part of the diet, but birds were hunted in the marshes and the Nile produced a great deal of fish, which was the main animal protein for most people.
Detail from a tomb painting showing birds being hunted These features are known from finds of plant and animal residues and from texts. The Egyptians also celebrated their world in the decoration of tombs. There we see many images of agriculture and animal husbandry, but the Nile itself is largely absent. Instead, the focus of watery scenes is on marshes where game was hunted and on small watercourses that were crossed by peasants and herders. Pictures in temples of major festivals and of the return of trading and transport expeditions that used large ships are the main representations that show the river explicitly. These scenes brought glory to the king, who commissioned the expeditions.
The shape of the land was significant in other ways. The Delta and its mouths posed obstacles to invaders. Travel into the desert or to Asia was altogether more difficult than movement within Egypt, where the ease of boat travel on the Nile was a major unifying force in such a long, thin country. In social terms, however, the river could also separate people. The image of a poor man was someone who had no boat, whom the more fortunate should ferry across. Dying was 'coming to land' on the other side, and the passage into the next world was a 'crossing'.
