For Camel Collectors


DROMEDARY CAMELS OF EGYPT

Camels are amazing creatures. I have developed a fascination for them as I have traveled back and forth to Egypt for many years on buying trips for my importing. At the 2000 millennium celebration I was in Egypt at the Pyramids for the extravaganza, the largest crowd of people I have personally been in. As we walked up the approach to the Pyramids we passed a line-up of policemen mounted on white camels, looking almost surreal in the moonlight.

Camels were first domesticated in Arabia in the 3rd millennium B.C. By the Late Bronze Age (1200 B.C.) the camel was used for transportation, bringing frankincense and myrrh, and food in Syro-Palestine. Camels are mentioned in the Bible and were used by Ishmael, first son of Abraham (Genesis 16:15). Man could travel longer distances in the desert and to more isolated areas by using camels.

Still commonly used by Bedouins in North Africa and the Middle East, they give an ¹other worldly¹ charm to a trip to Egypt They are used to pull plows, turn water wheels to irrigate fields and carry grain to market. Their hides become leather and the camel hair is made into luxury clothes loved around the world, and they provide camel meat, milk and cheese.
