  1. The Egyptian papyrus plant is most closely connected with writing - in fact, the English term 'paper' is derived from the word 'papyrus' - however the Egyptians discovered numerous other applications for the plant besides serving as a writing surface for papers and writings. Papyrus was utilized for a variety of purposes, including food, rope, sandals, boxes, baskets, and mats, window shades, dolls, amulets to fend against throat ailments, and even miniature fishing boats. It was also used in religious devotion, since it was frequently woven together to create the ankh sign and presented to the gods as a gift. Papyrus was also used as a political emblem in the Sma-Tawy, the Egyptian insignia. Get 3D Virtual World Games for free now!
