Abstract

In its broadest sense, “technology” encompasses the means by which an object is produced, and is sometimes defined as the science of “mechanical and industrial arts”. It does not imply anything about the level of sophistication of those means. Egyptian technology is relatively simple, and lacks, for most of pharaonic history, iron.
