What is the most interesting ancient civilization?
The most isolated ancient civilization in India is theSentineslese. They number around 250 and have lived on their islandfor about 60,000 years.
It is difficult to answer this questions as the term "powerful" is ambiguous. Furthemore, many eastern civilizations have not been researched well enough and may have been mor…e "powerful" than originally assumed. However, in terms of military power, it is generally accepted that Ancient Rome reach a level of military tactics and proweness far greated than anything else at the time. It's military tradition is said to be partly based on Macedonian and Spartan military traditions originating in the Hellenic world. In terms of science, the civilization which has most contributed overall to modern science, engineering and medicine, is Ancient Greece. This should not undermine the amazing advancements of other civilizations such as Ancient China, Egypt, Phoenicians etc.
This depends on your definintion of civilization. There was Babylon, which was a mere city. The first true known nation was Egypt.
Agricultural areas, preferably near trade routes.
In the wet, Rome. In the east, China.
The most anchient civilization is the etruscand also they had the first alfabet 1000 -1500 years before the phoenicians. They had an extremly developt civilization ,they… were the base of the greek, roman ... civilizations.
Oldest known is Lemuria. Lemuria is the oldest civilization in the world. According to various esoteric sources, civilization first appeared 78,000 years ago in the giant cont…inent known as Mu or Lemuria and lasted for an astonishing 52,000 years. It is sometimes said to be the oldest civilization has been destroyed in earthquakes generated by a pole shift which occurred some 26,000 years ago, or about 24,000 BC. Lemuria is the oldest civilization.
Ancient civilizations began by rivers and fertile lands. The first civilizations started in the Fertile Crescent, around the Nile river. This was known as the "Cradle of Civil…ization"

The Ancient Hellenic (Greek) civilizations. They gave us the ideas of a republic and governance as well as learning and philosophy. They laid the foundations of modern science… and gave birth to modern maths, logic, and the concept of a mathematic proof. However the Greek civilization is said to have been greatly influenced in the beginning by Ancient Egypt. If we are looking at inventions many other civilizations have contributed such as Ancient China who gave us paper, gunpowder and many other. Mesopotamia gave us the wheel. It is difficult to say that one civilization was the most influential because most of them are interrelated. However it is generally accepted that Ancient Greece experienced a "Golden Age" during which extraordinary advancements where made in all the main aspects of modern civilization.
Most ancient civilizations built their societies around rivers (ex: Tigris, Euphrates, Yellow, Nile). They did this because rivers are fresh water and supply water to drink as… well as for irrigation (agriculture). Food and water supplies are a must for a civilization!
It depends what important means. In terms of contributions to the modern world, Ancient Greece contributed to Medicine, Science, Art, Engineering and Philosophy and laid the f…oundations of the Renaissance. However, the Golden Age of Ancient Greece has roots in Ancient Egypt. Rome was an outstanding military force but it's contributions to Art and Science are disproportionate to that of Greece and it is generally considered to have stalled advancements in these areas by conquering the Hellenic world. However the Romans had a contribution in Engineering. The Arabs took over Greece in Mathematics and advanced algebra. It really depends what you consider important. Important in what field? In terms of science and technology I would have to go with Greece.
This answer depends on what successful means. If it means how long it lasted, then China is the most successful civilization following by the Byzantine empire. In terms of con…tributions to science, medicine, philosophy and the arts the Hellenic civilizations are the most successful. In terms of expansion, Rome, Mongol empire and more recently Britain were the most successful. I go with Greece cause I'm a science person.
Rome it was Mesopotamia for hundreds of years
In Ancient Rome
Greece. From the Gods to the slaves everything Greek was in demand and shaped Roman society.
In Roman Empire
There were two civilizations that influenced the ancient Romans, they were the Greek and the Etruscan. The Greeks gave the Romans a cultural stepping stone, but the Romans too…k the Greek things and made them uniquely Roman. For example, the differences in the theater buildings, or in the plays and poems. Although the Romans considered everything Greek either elite or effeminate, they still used Greek physicians and tutors and sent their young men to study in Greece. On the other hand, the Romans absorbed many aspects of the Etruscan culture. Examples of this is the Roman passion for chariot racing which was developed by the Etruscans, and the freedom that the Roman women enjoyed. Certain religious ceremonies could be traced back to the Etruscans. So its a toss up as to which people influenced Rome the most.
