Best Answer

There were three: akhet (inundation), peret (coming out) and sjemu (the dry season)


Akhet - the inundation(June-September): The Flooding Season.
No farming was done at this time, as all the fields were flooded. Instead, many farmers worked for the pharaoh (king), building pyramids or temples. Some of the time was spent mending their tools and looking after animals.

Peret (October-February): The Growing Season.
In October the floodwaters receded, leaving behind a layer of rich, black soil. This fertile soil was then ploughed and seeded.

Shemu (March-May): The Harvesting Season.
The fully grown crops had to be cut down (harvested) and removed before the Nile flooded again. It was also the time to repair the canals ready for the next flood.

  • 1ST INTERMEDIATE PERIOD
  • 2ND INTERMEDIATE PERIOD
  • 3RD INTERMEDIATE PERIOD

--

Not literally speaking, the three major time periods of ancient Egypt is not intermediate periods but the following:

• Old Kingdom

• Middle Kingdom

• New Kingdom

Intermediate, dictionary speaking, means coming in between two things in a time (place, order, etc.), and does not make any sense for being named as specific points in time since it means in between points, not really points themselves.

Actually, the Egyptians had three "seasons", mainly used for farmers. The seasons were "Akhet", "Peret", and "Shemu".
