Thomas Milton

View of the nilometer, Cairo, Egypt, 1802. Nilometers were ancient devices for measuring the annual inundation of the Nile. The annual flooding of the Nile was always vitally important to Egypt as it governed the fertility of the soil and could mean the difference between abundance and starvation. Plate 2 from Views of Egypt by Luigi Mayer.
