Первый переходный период сменяет период Древнего царства, поскольку после упадка центральной власти в Египте из-за растущей мощи региональных властей и длительного периода сильной засухи и голода, Египет разделен на несколько региональных областей, называемых номами

Цитаты

Very little monumental evidence survives from this period, especially towards the beginning of the era. The First Intermediate Period was a dynamic time in history where rule of Egypt was roughly divided between two competing power bases. One of those bases resided at Heracleopolis in Lower Egypt, a city just south of the Faiyum region. The other resided at Thebes in Upper Egypt. It is believed that during this time, the temples were pillaged and violated, their existing artwork was vandalized, and the statues of kings were broken or destroyed as a result of this alleged political chaos.
