Egyptians devised ways to benefit from the annual flooding of the Nile from July through December. Canals were dug along the Nile to divert the floods and silt, and to expand the reach of the water onto the fields. Because the canals were lower than the fields, the water had to be lifted up and over the banks onto the land. The oldest method was a bucket brigade.
