What did ancient Egyptians eat?
Wheat and barley were the most important crops and were grown to make the staples of bread and beer. In this first wall painting, you can see cereals being collected as taxes by officials on behalf of the pharaoh.
Farmers grew other crops such as watermelons, grapes, figs, lentils and peas, and spices like coriander and cumin. Poultry and meat are also shown on the table in the second wall painting.
