Ancient Egypt Fact Nineteen

The Papyrus was a reed that the Egyptians utilized to make sheets to record information on. The process to transform it from plant to paper included cutting them into strips, pressing them together, pounding them flat and then allowing them to dry to make sheets. It was readily found along the Nile River and referred to as Nile grass. Today it is nearly extinct in the Nile Delta.
