Excerpt (5,118 years ago):

The king is shown victorious over his enemies. He is shown striking down a kneeling enemy, whilst stepping on the bodies of some other foes.


Narmer (3,100 BC) was thefounder of the First Dynasty, and in turn the first king of a unified Egypt. The tablet above is thought by some to depict the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt under the king Narmer.
