Egyptian society, with all its complex writing and
monuments, was like any other; if you understand the hieroglyphics. In this
essay, I will report to my government how the Egyptian writing and scribes
affected the Egyptian life and government. The Egyptian writing material
used was stone and papyrus. It was used to inscribe writing in the big monuments
known as pharaohs. The word “pharaohs” meant a form of title “great house.” The
writing in these monuments was called hieroglyphics; which meant “priest
writing” in ancient Greece. This writing was on every monument and was there to
describe the power that the pharaohs had; it also described the deeds and
accomplishments that each pharaoh had. The writing was also not that easy
understood, it wasn’t like the writing we use today; it was more complex. They
did not appear to use words but figures that meant different things. They often
had symbols of animals and even other people. The writing was what made the
If we were to be able to read fully what this hieroglyphics were
it would be very useful to us. Not useful in a sense to use this information
against them, but it would be useful to recognize the people that lived and
ruled Egypt at that time. It would give us a sense of history as to how our
world was ruled in past times.
In addition, if these writings were to be
erased, the impact on the society would be tremendous. Not only would the
society loose place as to who was what but they would loose their pasts.
Although some might still have memories, they would not have the writings to
back up the monuments, the monuments would therefore be useless and they would
have no meaning. By them loosing their history, that would mean that we would
loose a part of our history, because our history depends on theirs.
conclusion, the Egyptian society keeps its memories in writing and big
monuments. It gives them a sense of memory, because every time they look at one
of these monuments they would remember how its society once was. It would bring
them back to the past, to where the pharaohs ruled Egypt.
