The word Dynasty means a royal house or a sequence of rulers, the successive families that inherited and ruled Egypt.

There were 30 dynasties, varying greatly in length, with some of them overlapping each other.

Reasons for separating the different dynasties are not very clear, but location played a part. The centre of power shifted up and down the Nile Valley.

Pre-dynastic Period 

It corresponds to the new stone age. This period saw the gradual but steady development of agriculture and a settled way of life. The majority of settlements were in the areas of Middle and Upper Egypt, although they extend from the apex of the Delta area as far as the second cataract.

This era was rich in pottery making starting from simple pots to sophisticated designs.

Tombs development as monuments were present although being constructed from mud brick and the corpse was simply wrapped in animals hide.
