ISHS Acta Horticulturae 582: International Symposium on Mediterranean Horticulture: Issues and Prospects

ANCIENT EGYPTIAN AGRICULTURE AND THE ORIGINS OF HORTICULTURE

Author:   J. Janick
Keywords:   history, technology
DOI:   10.17660/ActaHortic.2002.582.1
Abstract:
Egyptian civilization dates back to the dawn of civilization and remnants exist in a continuous 6000 year-old record. The artistic genius engendered by Egyptian civilization, the superb condition of many burial chambers, and the dry climate have made it possible to reconstruct a history of agricultural technology. Ancient Egypt is shown to be the source of much of the agricultural technology of the Western world.
