Warfare in
Ancient Egypt

Egypt was often at war with neighbouring countries, in order to try and get even more land and power. The pharaoh was the leader of his people in war. When leading the army into battle, he would wear a special crown and ride on a chariot.

Egyptians used spears, swords and clubs as weapons, and later they copied a very powerful bow from their enemies.
