    I have to do one for friday, I need help picking points on why ancient egypt was so sucessfull.

    Its not really finding the points, I have a few in mind (the nile, strong economy, location, government) but its hard finding sources to explain these.

    Anyone?

    It might be worth having a wee look about here. It's a British Museum thing.

    Nope. There were very few slaves in Ancient Egypt. In fact, the lack of slaves may be a reason as to why their society did so well.

    Some scholars say there were no slaves at all, however, I think there were probably some from south of Nubia and others from battles with northern empires.

    Stands to reason, really

    As I recall the gladiators were also well paid professionals. In fact wasn't it almost the WWE of it's day, only with real fighting.
