I have noted that Ancient Egypt ran from 3100 BC to about 300 BC, while Ancient China 2100 BC to 221 BC ... I am curious if the two civilizations ever interacted? Wars? Trade? I know the great wall was not yet built during this period.

Any documents or information you can provide pertaining directly to ancient china / egyptian interactions would be helpful.

Thank you

Welcome to AE, brand1130!
 
Unfortunately, we don't know of such interactions. But there, probably, were some travelers who who could reach China during the period when Hellenistic Ptolemaic dynasty ruled Egypt. Which is time wise later then the time span you're interested in.

Thank you for the response Sarmat, and I appreciate the welcome! Just to clarify, when you say "we" I assume you mean the general historic society, or just the people here on this forum? I'm not surprised at the answer, as I have found absolutely nothing on the topic doing my own research and I assume such interactions would be heavily documented.

Anyways, thanks again!

Yeah, sorry for being unclear on that. By "we" I meant the general historic society, not just the cool guys on our forum here. Smile

At those ealy times directly contact was very unlikely. However, I wouldn't discard indirect transmition of cultural elements throught third parties.
