What a person wore also
depended on class in which they
were born. The Nobleman’s wife
wore a dress of fine linen and
jewelry made of glass. Also, she
applied ‘Kohl’ to her eyelids (Kohl
was a powder used as eye
makeup). A farmer’s family had
coarse linen sheets that had been
woven by his wife and a basket
that held their clothes. The
farmer wore a kilt made of linen
and sandals made of reeds.
Person’s life style also
dependedon which social class you
were in. Firstly, there was the
Nobleman’s family .Next, there were
the craftsmen and the shopkeepers. .
Most of the time, the craftsmen
were scribes or artists, which were
highly prized in society. After them,
there were the peasants and the
farmer. The taxes made it very
difficult for the peasant and farmers,
especially the ones that affected the
crops. Lastly, there were the slaves.
The slaves worked for the rich
people but performed the role of
servants more than slaves. They
worked humiliating and degrading
positions, which included building
the pyramids. (Slaves mean ‘One
bound in servitude as the property of
a person or household. Without
slaves the rich people would not
have been able to live their opulent
The family life of ancient
Egypt was very valued by all family
members no matter what class
they belonged to. The children
were very treasured and regarded
as a great blessing. Also, women in
ancient Egypt were equal to men in
many ways. In lower class families
the mother raised the children,
while in wealthy and noble families
the slaves and servants took care of
the children by attending to their
daily needs. If parents were rich
the boys could be sent to school.
There was no evidence of school
for girls, but some were taught to
read and write at home
There are many
ways that Ancient
Egyptian daily life can
be connected to the
religion and the
modern life today.
Ancient Egyptian daily
life connects to
religion because there
were many days of the
year that were
devoted to the gods
and the daily life
revolved around the
pharaoh, who was the
peoples’ version of a
‘living god’. This also
means that the laws
were set around what
the ‘gods’ wanted. The
daily life of Ancient
Egypt is connected to
the modern life today.
Ancient Egypt was a highly civilized society. This is demonstrated through the family
life, clothing and social classes of the people. Today, we can still see the many ways
Ancient Egypt has impacted our society.
