Papyrus originates from the Nile Delta. It lives in the sun, its roots immersed in fresh water which it drinks in abundance. It serves as a shelter for the wetland fauna: birds, but also hippopotamus and crocodiles.
Used as a writing instrument, the papyrus is woven throughout Egyptian history.
It was also used as a raw material in valves, weaving and even in boat construction. The root was used as a fuel, and the pith as a torch wick.
Papyrus was also a source of food. The fruits and the soft part of the stem were eaten raw, while the rhizome, rich in starch, was roasted before being eaten.
