A civilization is the stage or process of which a society reaches the point of most advanced stage of their way of life, social and cultural development. Egypt is a perfect example of this due to their clear advancements from the first upcoming societies. Early in the chapter we learn that during the early human life, they would be constantly mobile, they would carry few possessions, and there was no hierarchical status (pg 6). As technological advancements occurred, and those “societies” were able to create their own means of distinguishing things such as wealth, it created the starting point of permanent human settlements. Egypt did just this by settling on the banks of the Nile River, which they also used for agricultural means.
Requirements should be altered because although we have a profound knowledge on ancient Egypt during its construction and growth, we only know pure basics about what “common” life was like. There was “no need for written laws beyond what was customary or proclaimed law by their pharaoh, "which shows how scriptures are necessary in order to understand portions of life that are not hypothesis (pg 35). They can show the growth and advancements in the society not only through descriptions but also through evolution of writing style.
