Welcome to The Age of the Egyptians podcast series by Cambridge For Kids. This fourth episode looks at Inventions. Egyptian inventions were vast and it might be easier to list the things they did not invent such as the wheel; not unexpected in a civilization where boats were mainly used as the means of transport. The Pyramids. Writing. Papyrus Sheets. Black Ink. The Ox-drawn Plough. The Sickle. Irrigation. The Sundial. Are but a few of their many inventions.
