Ancient Egypt: Sites and Settlements of the Dynastic Period

This map details the key settlements of the Ancient Egyptian civilisation. Also shown are many of the important Ancient Egyptian sites and temples that remain today. The various capitals of the period are highlighted on the map in addition to the locations of the natural resources and minerals exploited by the Ancient Egyptians.

The importance of the Nile, specifically the fertility that it brings to the land through which it passes, is also a key feature of this map. To add further interest to the map, a papyrus texture has been incorporated into the map's colouring scheme.

In addition to the main map, a number of smaller inset maps detail some of the key sites of Ancient Egypt. Plans of the temples at Karnak and Luxor are included along with maps of the pyramids at Giza and the necropolis at Abusir.

This map is available to purchase in poster form, ideal for direct display or framing. This poster is also available in an encapsulated format, making it suitable for classroom display or for use at home by children who are learning about Ancient Egypt.

Hello, my name is Ed Merritt. I am a cartographer based in Southampton (UK). I established Merritt Cartographic in 2006.

I am a graduate of Oxford Brookes University, receiving an honours degree in Mapping and Cartography. Having worked in the past for a large publishing company in central London, much of my current work is commissioned for inclusion in reference books. I also produce interactive maps for deployment on websites and in applications as well as products for use on public display panels and signposts. As a freelance cartographer, I have produced custom maps and graphics for a wide range of publishers, charities and media organisations. My work has been included in products published by Dorling Kindersley, Millennium House, National Geographic, Pearson Longman, Royal Horticultural Society, Taschen and Weldon Owen.

I enjoy being creative in my work and like to explore new approaches. As a map-maker, I have a natural tendency to pay attention to detail and also to work hard to ensure that I am being as accurate as I can in the work that I produce.

For more information on how Merritt Cartographic can best assist you with your project, please send me a message or make contact via the information displayed above and throughout the site. I look forward to hearing from you.
