Thank you for your interesting question.
At the time of King Tutankhamen (and times long before and after his
reign), the following crops were mainstays:
* Vegetables (especially garlic, onions, corn, leeks, radishes,
cabbage, Egyptian lettuce, cucumbers, asparagus, peas, and various
* and fruits (especially dates, figs, grapes, pomegranates, and melons)
(?Work & Trade,? Egyptology Online:
http://www.egyptologyonline.com/Work%20&%20Trade.htm , ?Agriculture
and horticulture in ancient Egypt,?
Some exporting of crops certainly did take place; as far as
agricultural products are concerned, mostly grain was exported, if
there was more crop that what was deemed needed.) (?Ancient Egyptian
, ?Ancient Egypt,? MSN Encarta,
The tools Egyptian farmers used included:
? Wooden plows (usually pulled by cattle)
? Wooden sickles
? Wooden hoes (?most often used was made of two separate pieces fitted
together and bound with rope. The first piece was a handle and the
second a blade.?
? Shaduf (?a mechanical irrigation device used to bring water from the
canals to the fields?)
? Skiffs (boat-like floatation devices made of papyrus)
For pictures of many of these tools, along with further explanations,
please see ?The Farmer and His Tools:?
In addition, ox, cattle, and donkeys were used to pull equipment and
pigs, sheep, and goats were sometimes used cover seeds, so that the
task needn?t be done by hand.
