Topic sentences for an ancient History essay?

QUESTION
Topic sentences for an ancient History essay?
I have an essay due by midnight tonight on ancient history. It is a 2000 words essay on the topic: Were the ancient Egyptian slaves actually slaves.

This is what i have for an introduction:

Throughout history, scholars and historians have argued the actual existence of slavery in ancient Egypt, it was presumed and thought for a long period of time that the Great Pyramids at Giza were build by thousands of foreign slaves, but most historians now days have concluded and agree that although there is a minute amount of historical evidence to suggest that slaves in Egypt existed, the likelihood of them being slaves by our definition is minuscule. It has been suggested by historians that the slaves could have been Asiatic prisoners of war, farmers who could not grow their crops due to the flooding of the Nile, common people of Egypt whom had—due to debt—been sold or sold themselves in order to repay their debts, criminals who were forced to work as their punishment, citizens who were born into a slave family or a person—foreign or citizen—who had been traded in as a means of currency.

My problem is that i don’t know how to write the body of the essay, like I know what I have to say, i know what should be written…..Just i can’t actually put it into words to form an essay. What i need is topic sentences and like a sentence to start me off.

Please, I really have to do this to pass my course and has to be due by midnight tonight. We only got the sheet 2 days ago and it’s already due and i’m stressing out something massive >.< Thoughts? Help? Topic sentences?
