Herodotus, the Greek historian, called the ancient Egypt "the gift of the Nile," noting that the civilization along the Nile Valley owed its survival and success to the dynamics of the River Nile. Specifically, the annual flooding of the Nile and the resulting deposition of fertile soil and the availability of water from the river contributed to the abundance of plants that provided available food to humans and animals. Consequently, as Burn (2018) notes, the Nile River Valley provided food security, which contributed to increase of the human population and allowed the people to devote more time and resources to arts, culture, technology, and other developments, thus giving rise to one of the most successful civilizations of the ancient world. According to Moret (2010), many authors agree that without the Nile valley and its annual flooding, the success of the civilization would not have been achieved, thus supporting the ancient observation by Herodotus that Egypt was the gift of the Nile.
The purpose of this paper is to develop a detailed but comprehensive analysis of previous studies and research work that support the view that Egypt was the gift of the Nile. Specifically, the idea is to annotate several research-based works that describe how the River Nile played the most significant and critical role of helping in the establishment and success of one of the greatest civilizations of the ancient world along the Nile Valley.
