Geographical Position of Egypt
Egypt is located in the Northeastern corner of Africa. It is connected to Asia via Sinai Peninsula and separated from Europe by the Mediterranean. Egypt is located in the core of the world. It lies at the meeting point of Africa, Asia and Europe and it is the land on which the River Nile and the Mediterranean Sea meet. Geographically speaking, Egypt is the mother of rivers and seas, the cradle of farming and the school of navigation. The Mediterranean extends in the North to join Egypt with the Atlantic Ocean and the Red Sea on the Eastern-South to join it with the Indian Ocean. Approximately, the Nile River runs on the Egyptian Land from the Pleistocene Age. On the Nile River’s banks, the Egyptian man lived his first ages of cultures which called the Predynastic Period (prior to 3100 BC).
