Abstract

In a world highly dependent upon agricultural resources from which Nilotic societies emerged, farming tools were intimately associated with daily life. This paper focuses on the agrarian tool kit of the first farming societies of Egypt, from Neolithic times through Dynasties 1 and 2. Archaeological excavations have yielded very little information on the tools used by Predynastic farmers, however, their study combined with that depicted in mortuary contexts from Old Kingdom times and later, allow us to understand the diversity of tools used by the first farmers of the Nile Valley.
