Upper Egypt

Upper Egypt was the long, particular strip of ancient Egypt located south of the Delta. This area is written of four topographic zones: the Nile, the floodplain, the low desert, and the high desert. The ancient Egyptians worked each zone differently.

Upper Egypt, geographical and cultural section of Egypt, generally consisting of the Nile River valley south of the delta and the 30th simultaneous N. It thus dwells of the entire Nile River valley from Cairo south to Lake Nasser (organized by the Aswan High Dam). This division also takes what some scholars term Middle Egypt (nearly from Lisht to Panopolis).

In late predynastic times, Upper Egypt constituted a political entity sort from Lower Egypt (the delta region). But Menes (flourished 2900 bce) united Upper and Lower Egypt, and each Egyptian king thereafter had as one of his royal titles “King of Upper and Lower Egypt” (“He of the Sut-Plant and the Bee”), thus meaning that he was the deified theatrical of those divisions’ fusion.
