The Egyptian civilization and the Indus Valley civilization were very different places In Egypt while pyramids were being built cities were beginning to form in the Indus Valley Both of these places had fertile lands and natural barriers to prevent invaders Nobody really knows about the Indus Valley government except for Sargon of Akkad but we do know that they worshipped several gods including Shiva In Egypt their rulers or pharaohs were considered to be gods but they also had gods that they worshipped such as Ra the sun god The Nile River a vast desert the Mediterranean Sea and the highlands of east-central Africa made up Egypts geography The Egyptians mostly lived around the Nile River which flooded every year because of the rich fertile soil it provided The Nile flooded at about the same time every year and usually about the same amount of swelling occurred The Egyptians knew this and therefore built their houses far enough away from the river so that it wouldnt flood their homes In addition they planted crops where they would get a good amount of silt that fertilized them but in such a way that they didnt wash away when the river receded In the Indus Valley extremely high mountains on the north side and deserts to the west and somewhat on the east were the civilizations natural boundaries These kept almost all invaders out of their cities Monsoons in the area kept the country wet in the summer months and dry the rest of the year Like the Nile the Indus River flooded every year and gave the citizens fertile soil to plant their crops in However the Indus Rivers floods were unpredictable as it changed its course many times It also depended somewhat on the monsoon winds These wet and dry season alternations made it difficult for the residents to plant but somehow they managed with what they had
