Food and Agriculture in Egypt, Yesterday and TodaySCN11
A journey through ancient Egypt: the cradle of civilization and one of the oldest agriculture systems of the world, born around the Nile river and oasis, based on cereals, pulses and vegetables as well as some staple products: bread, beer, wine and papyrus, the ancestor of paper. Then, a look at an Egyptian dinner table today, where imported products have taken the place of local food, sign of a deep political, economic and social crisis. What is the role of agriculture and food in the history of one of the oldest and most densly populated countries of the world?
