    There were also different types of craftsmen: like carpenters, potters, metal workers, jewelers, glass workers, painters, sculptures, and stone carvers. Craftsman worked for the king, building temples and designing temples and tombs. They also worked on monuments, engravings and paintings. Craftsmen genuinely worked together in workshops, but they also stayed in huts when working on tombs. Most craftsmen artwork was placed in tombs too. Carpenters used different woods to make statues and furniture. Some objects that carpenter made were produced from trees that grew in the Nile Valley or Delta. "Potters tools were made from river clay, but the finest pots were made from Chalky Clay found in Quena". Mental smiths and jewelers worked with copper, bronze, gold and silver, which they hammered into shape. They also used the technique of making mini-models of the artwork. Plus glass workers made vessels by making a pot shape out of clay and sand.

    Pharaohs- Pharaohs were so important to ancient Egypt because they were thought to play the role of a guardian to their subjects. Pharaohs were thought to be guardians because they would keep their people safe and protect the weak from the powerful. Pharaohs would represent and fight for their country and make sure to distribute justice too. Another reason why pharaohs were thought as guardians was because many pharaohs would help protect Egypt by fighting in the wars with the army soldiers. The pharaohs of Egypt always made sure that Egypt was well managed and protected and that, to me, is what made them like guardians and important to ancient Egypt.

    Priests- Priests were very important to ancient Egypt becuase of the three major roles they played. In ancient Egypt there were three different types of priests. One type of priest was a high priest. A high priests was a political advisor to the pharaoh and also a political leader to the temple. Another type of priest was an oracle priest. An oracle priest was the priest who was responsible to give food and clothes to the god statues and close the temples chambers at night. Being responsible to care for the god statues was important because caring for the statues was a big part of the Egyptian religion. The third type of priest was the lay magicians who would help commoners understand religion and help provide counseling. The high, oracle, and lay magician priests all made an influence on ancient Egypt by the way they help people understand religion, care for god statues, and provide advise for pharaohs.

    Upper Class People Hannah Dove
    Throughout this project you will be able to see the differences in the social classes. The social classes include the lower, middle, and high class. You will also be able to see how the life styles and jobs were very different from the lower class to the upper class people. On this wiki page you will learn and read about the upper class. People in the upper class include viziers, pharaohs, priests, and scribes. Some upper class people lived very rich and luxurious lives but others worked very busy lives. In the next few paragraphs you will also learn the roles, daily lives, and importance of viziers, pharaohs, priests, and scribes in ancient Egypt.

    Viziers- A vizier was picked based on three main reasons. One reason was that a vizier had to be able to treat everyone equally and fairly. A vizier couldn't lose his temper while dealing with petitioners and had to consider what they had to say. Another way a vizier was picked was by their social class. A pharaoh didn't just pick a commoner to be a vizier, the pharaoh would usually pick one of his or her relatives to take the role. The third reason a vizier could be picked was that a vizier had to be able to help manage justice on the pharaoh's behalf. A vizier was probably picked for these reasons because a vizier played a very important role in the Egyptian government.
