An Egyptian ankh necklace

A pendant from ancient Egypt
The pharaohs of the Middle Kingdom restored prosperity and stability in Egypt. This event stimulates a resurgence of art, literature and monumental construction projects.
Mentuhotep II and his successors of the 11th Dynasty of pharaohs ruled Thebes until the vizier Amenemhet I moved the capital to Licht (in the Fayum oasis) just after his coronation around -1985.
From the city of Licht, the pharaohs of the 12th dynasty undertake a vast project of land reclamation and irrigation to increase agricultural production in the region. In addition, the army reconquered Nubia, a region rich in quarries and gold mines, while workers built defensive structures in the eastern delta, called the "Prince's Walls", to defend themselves against foreign attack.
