No development has had a greater effect on human history than the introduction of domesticated plants and animals. Although the inception of domesticates and agriculture rose independently in several regions of the world, the Near East has been considered the cradle of early agriculture and Egypt the site of the earliest great civilisation to use it. This volume explores the development and extent of Egyptian agriculture and the various domestic species used. Illustrated with wall paintings and reliefs that give abundant evidence of the ways in which the Egyptians used plants and animals daily life.
