After thoroughly researching her mummified remains, researchers determined she was in her fifties when she died. Okay maby not all 20,000 but a bunch probabley did. I agree that the calender was a really important accomplishment of the Ancient Egyptians, however I think that the calender was only possible because of the Ancient Egyptians ability to use math. What do you think was the most important accomplishment of the ancient Egyptians and why? I'd also point out that it took 20 years and 20,000 people worked on the project. Medicine Many treatments we use today were employed by several ancient peoples throughout Africa. Summary of Egyptian Mathematics Next: Up: Previous: In the few bullet items below we give a summary of known Egyptian mathematical achievements.
The most important use for papyrus was to make scrolls, which was the first paper. He was able to secure peace with the Hittites and maintain Egyptian borders. She therefore made efforts to curry favor with them and succeeded admirably. They had used measurement, geometry, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The chapel was later destroyed as part of the effort to erase her from Egyptian history. Neither the Greek nor the Roman women had such a good standing in their societies and the final blow for women's rights and a good standing in their society came at the hand of the Abrahamitic monotheist religions Judaism, Christianity, Islam who took the rights fully away from the women.

Many local rulers were virtually autonomous during this period and dynasties 23-24 are poorly documented. Then you go back to the surgical practices. Without getting mummified they wouldn't have got afterlife. These structures can be as tall as 482 feet 147 m high.
The medicine accomplishment of ancient egyptions permitted to develop into the advanced medicine that is used today. Papyrus is a type of plant. Also they created addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division which are the basis of our mathematics today. Mathe had a decimal system using seven different symbols. A structure known as the African Stonehenge in present-day Kenya constructed around 300 B. Also it taught us how they did the mummfication process,and the building of pyraids. They just had numbers for factors of 10 such as 1, 10, 100, etc.
I think this because math helped Ancient Egypt expand, grow, and have a more complex civilization. Some of their medicines were quite strange. The pyramids took a good amount of mathematics and time to build and still have them standing today. One of them, Necho of Sais, ruled briefly as the first king of the 26th dynasty before being killed by the Kushite leader Tanuatamun, in a final, unsuccessful grab for power. There is a theory that she contracted bone cancer through her usage of a lotion that contained a carcinogen. Of course, there are the engineering feats of the Egyptians: the bafflingly raised obelisks and the more than 80 pyramids.
For numbers they used a decimal system. That takes skill and extensive knowledge to do that. The 19th and 20th dynasties, known as the Ramesside period for the line of kings named Ramses saw the restoration of the weakened Egyptian empire and an impressive amount of building, including great temples and cities. The Hyksos rulers of the 15th dynasty adopted and continued many of the existing Egyptian traditions in government as well as culture. How else, other than by using math, would they know how big to make the buildings, plan the building of the structures, and how long to make the irrigation systems? Paper: Making paper out of papyrus allowed people to carry their writings with them. The Old Kingdom began with the third dynasty of pharaohs. Ancient Egyptian scribes used the number system the majority.
I think that the most important accomplishment of the ancient Egyptians was astronomy because they made tools to observe the stars, and they used these tools to perfectly align the pyramids with stars. Cartouches are name plates that were put on their coffins, so in the afterlife people would know who they were. He posted troops and ships at strategic points on the coast and allowed the pirates to attack their prey. If theydidn't preser … ve the body, the spirit wouldn't be able to recognizeit.

A common language allows the spread of power. You could not go to the afterlife without being mummified because they believed you have to perserve your body. Without mathmatics, the Egyptians couldn't build pyrimads because they wouldn't know how to mesure the stone. Contemporary scientists have reconstructed these ancient vessels and their fishing gear and have completed the transatlantic voyage successfully. Their medical advancements have helped us so much in ways that we use everyday to stay alive. They now didn't need to hull heavy buckets over to the place where they grew the plants.
