Ancient Egyptian civilization coalesced around 3100 BC with the political unification of Upper and Lower Egypt under Menes.
The civilization was notable for the early development of an independent writing system, mathematics, and medicine, construction projects including pyramids, obelisks and temples, trade and even a peace treaty with surrounding regions, the first planked boats, as well as a formidable military. Ancient Egyptian society included a bureaucracy of elite scribes, religious leaders, and administrators under the control of a pharaoh, who ensured the cooperation and unity of the Egyptian people in the context of an elaborate system of religious beliefs.
