An Egyptian ankh necklace
Ankh (Latin translation of ancient Egypt: "ansh") is a word used in ancient Egypt to mean "life" or "living". The Egyptian cross ankh is the hieroglyph that represents these concepts.
A pendant from ancient Egypt
The last great ruler of the Middle Kingdom, Amenemhet III, allowed Asian merchants to settle in the Nile Delta region to provide sufficient labor for his particularly ambitious campaigns.
Amenemhet III's mining and construction campaigns, combined with the flooding of the Nile later in his reign, strained the economy and precipitated the country's slow decline in the Second Intermediate Period. During this decline, corresponding to 13th and 14th Dynasties of pharaohs, Asian settlers gradually took control of the delta region and eventually ascended the Egyptian throne as Hyksos.
