The God Osiris assumed a great role in this culture as followers were expanded to allow the rich and poor alike.  The sun god Re also was in much popularity throughout this time. Art as well as trade thrived for the first few dynasties. Asian interlopes rule as well as the Hyksos in Lower Egypt through the 15th Dynasty and this dominated the country for decades.  Close to the 17th Dynasty, the Thebans declared war and with the use of the horse and the chariot, liberated the delta from the Hyksos.
