Unlike Egypt, the Fertile Crescent has few natural barriers, the Arabian and Syrian deserts, which provided less protection to early civilizations than the Libyan Desert did in Egypt. The massive remains of Akhenaton's city at Amarna indicate how quickly a new capital could be constructed on a hitherto unoccupied site if an Egyptian king wished to do so. Such a schema often dominates the factual content of texts, and it creates a strong bias toward recording foreign affairs, because in official ideology there is no internal dissent after the initial turmoil is over. “History” is as much a ritual as a process of events; as a ritual, its protagonists are royal and divine.

Egypt, like all the great early civilizations, was an agricultural society. The wealth of Egypt and the richness of the civilization which it spawned was based fundamentally on agriculture. Egyptian agriculture was organized around the annual Nile flood Ancient Gaza: Volume 2 (Cambridge Library Collection - Egyptology).
