The Camel in Ancient Egypt A. S. Saber Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Assiut University, Assiut, Egypt ABSTRACT The proposed time of camel entry into Egypt after its domestication in Arabia was found between 2500 and 1400 B.C. Evidences from excavation findings, archaeological records and rock engravings beginning from prehistoric time till Roman time, in which camels were certainly known, were reported in this study. Representative photos, diagrams and tables were used to support the findings of this study. Key words: Archaeological records, Rock engravings, Camel, Egypt. INTRODUCTION There are about 17 million camels in the world, of which 12 million are found in Africa. Of this estimated world population, 15.1 million are believed to be one-humped camels and 1.9 million two-humped. In Egypt, the number of camels reaches about 95,000. The number is declining, since the camel is being replaced by other domestic species and its importance as a means of transport as well as a source of animal protein is fading away. The proposed time of camel domestication is before 2000 B.C. (Free, 1944; Zeuner, 1963; Bulliet, 1978 and Ripinsky, 1985). Epstein (1971), taking into consideration the earliest Egyptian and Mesopotamian archaeological evidence, dates domestication as early as 4000 B.C. Walz (1956). However, it believes that camels were domesticated perhaps during the 13-12 century B.C. but not before 2000 B.C. (camels are mentioned in the Bible, Genesis, chap. 12, as being used by man in Abraham’s time, about the 18th Century B.C.). Domesticated camels probably entered Egypt during the early increased trade, but the first historical references to camels in Egypt
