What planet was known to ancient civilizations?
There are five planets that were known to the ancients; Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.
It contributed in a way that we learn from their mistakes and use their inventions for our benefit, in order to strive in the future we must learn of the past
What did people think about the arrangement of planets and stars in ancient civilizations such as Ancient Greece Egypt and India?
Most ancient civilizations believed that everything revolved around the earth and in most cases they believed the earth to be flat. Also, it may have based around the religion of the civilization.
The ancients only knew about (5 planets + Earth) because to really see the other two you needed a telescope.. The planets they knew were: . Mercury . Venus . (Earth) . Mars . Jupiter . Saturn . All these are easily visible to the naked eye and of cause they can be seen to move against the …background of the stars (except the Earth because we are on that) . It was in 1718 (290 years ago) that Uranus the 7th planet was discovered by William Herschel using a telescope. Although it is visible to the naked eye like the other six, it was never recognized as a planet by ancient observers due to its dimness and slow orbit. The 8th planet Neptune was found by mathematical prediction rather than regular observation. Unexpected changes in the orbit of Uranus led astronomers to deduce the gravitational perturbation of an unknown planet was the cause and they predicted where to look to find it. (MORE)
Mercury, Venus, Earth of course, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn They are all visible to the naked eye. mercury, venus, earth,mars, Jupiter and Saturn.
The Insular Celtic group, settled during the Iron Age due tomigration from the rest of Europe are the earliest knowncivilization of the British Isles. However, the Islands are knownto be inhabited since as early as the Stone Age.
mercury and venus are known as light planets, because they are closest to the sun.
The first recorded Democracy was found in Ancient Greece and in particular the Athenian Democracy [ÎÎ¸Î·Î½Î±ÏÎºÎ® ÎÎ·Î¼Î¿ÎºÏÎ±ÏÎ¯Î±]
The Aztecs in South America, Mayans in Central America, Incans in Peru, Romans in Europe, Egyptians in northern Africa , Babylonians, Assyrians, Sumerians, and Persians in modern Iraq, Greeks in Greece, Chinese in China (longest-lasting empire in the world, too), and probably many others that I did…n't mention. ........................................................................... Civilizations in this context I will be assuming to be complex societies that are categorized by having an increasingly dominant social form (e.g. complex division of people into different jobs/roles, the emergency of literacy and literate class normally characterized by a political and religious hierarchies, monumental public buildings that were built using skilled labour all supported by a particularly intensive agricultural system to support it all meaning they are all located near fresh water bodies/rivers. Ancient Civilizations are deemed to have emerged around 6,000 years ago in four main regions: . The Lower Tigris and Euphrates Valley (Summerian/Mesopotamia Civilization); . The valley of the Nile (Ancient Egypt Civilization); . The Indus Valley around Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro (Indus Civilization); . The Yellow River around An-yang (Chinese Civilization). The early civilizations of America (Inca/Mayan Civilizations), Greeks (Minoan/Mycenaean Civilizations), Korean, Persia, Romans emerged considerably later, and are not considered ancient. (MORE)
Yes, the Egyptians deserve to be known as a great civilization. Thewere advanced and people have learned a lot from theircivilization.
Well there are many different ways to look at it. If you are just talking about in iur solar system there are only two planets. Mars and Jupiter. Mars is totally red, and Jupiter is yellow, red, brown and white.
Uranus, Neptune and Pluto - now a dwarf planet. (and of course all the exoplanets that have been discovered recently)
Venus was known as the horned planet because it resembles our moon. When a planet or moon partially eclipses it, it resembles our crescent moon that looks like a horn
The first civilization was Uruk, but then came Ur, Babylon, Sippur, Nippar, and Lagash. Another very ancient village that came before Uruk was Catalhuyuk. . Its a civilization that has lived long before the modern and industrial age. The person above says Uruk was the first civilization but I …read it was the Indus valley civilization. (MORE)
The Krell. do not confuse with the bad-guy communistic Kree in (Captain Marvel) who have sent the title character to eventually ( always gets out of it) Blow Up Earth!
A few Civilizations defeated the Egyptians, resulting in what are know as Intermediary periods. The Nubians, The Hyksos Kings (Isrealites), The Persian Empire all ruled in Egypt for short periods. Alexander the Great, actually liberated the Egyptians from the Persian Empire, who ruled in Egypt fo…r around 200 years. The Persians where probably the true defeaters of the Egyptian civilization, because that would be the last time Egypt would be ruled by native Egyptians, Egypt would be ruled by Greeks for the next 300 Years. The Romans conquered Egypt in about 30 BC, when Octavian defeated Mark Anthony and Annexed Egypt to the Roman Empire, and this is generally considered to be the end of the rule of the pharaoh's.. >> >>Greek or Macedonian, Alexander the Great in any case.

To the Greeks and Romans there were seven known planets, each presumed to be circling the Earth. They considered the moon a planet which makes seven. The moon, Mercury, Venus, the Sun, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. Leave out the moon and you have six. Maybe that's what you mean.
The term "ancient" refers to past happens and word "civilization" refers to human cultures and human values.
Farmers and nomads began farming there. Nobody really knows the answer but somehow it started with them and I guess the population began to grow and they set up a government established a religion and went on from there!
Uranus was discovered by William Herschel on March 13, 1781\n. \n Neptune was discovered on September 23, 1846 by Johann Gottfried Galle and Heinrich Louis d'Arrest.\n. \nThe various dwarf planets were discovered at various times, the first one discovered being 1 Ceres on January 1, 1801 by Giuse…ppe Piazzi.

The eastern seaboard of the United States up to and including the Appalacian Mts was the coastal lowland of Atlantis.
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 continent 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. (MORE)
There were several elements that would have been encountered in their simple substance form and used by ancient people. They would not have been recognised as 'elements', but they were certainly exploited in the various ancient cultures Copper and gold in their native form as simple substances have… been used to make ornaments for at least 7000 years, and silver perhaps only a little less. Sulfur is encountered in its simple substance form as a yellow encrustation around volcanic fumraoles and in similar settings. Carbon as coal outcrops to the surface in many places, or, as charcoal, it would have been produced in early campfires and used for fuel, drawings, and as body paint. When the smelting process, initially to produce copper from its ores, was discovered, a new phase of civilization began. We refer to it as the "Bronze Age". This innovation led fairly rapidly to the discovery and use of lead, tin, and mercury. Much later, just a few centuries BC, the secret of making iron metal (basically very hot forced-air furnaces) was discovered, and we entered the "iron age". So there were basically just 9 of the simple substances we now recognize as elements known to early civilisations: The 7 metals copper, gold, silver, mercury, tin, lead, and iron, and the 2 non-metals carbon and sulfur.

The Krell. Dr. Morbius was a philologist- or a linguist- a language scholar and expert in different tongues.
Uranus is green-blue in colour Earth looks blue from space, although at lower altitudes some ofthe planet appears green
Venus, because it is very similar size to Earth, and it is a rocky planet like Earth is.
well, lots of ancient civilizations are known for trade, cultures, mining, golden ages, philosophy, and visual arts.
That would be Pluto-Charon. While Charon is usually though of asPluto's largest moon it does not actually orbit Pluto. It is closeenough to Pluto's mass that rather than Charon orbiting Pluto, thetwo objects revolve around their common center of mass, which liesbetween them, above the surface of Plu…to. Keep in mind that Plutois no longer considered a planet. (MORE)
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!
I think the better question to ask would be what are four examples of ancient Maya city-states. Here are the most famous four of the classical Maya. Tikal, Calakmul, Palenque, and Copan.
Because they did not use writing at the time and so they told stories and traditions through speaking and not actually recording their stories. As is passed down from person to person, information is missed out and soon the information disappears.
If I'm not mistaken the answer is MARS I think it was named after the Roman god Mars who was god of farming and war. ammar is sick
That would be the hellish planet named Venus... the Venusian atmosphere covers the planets surface.
Pluto was known as the 9th planet in the solar system until it was reclassified as a dwarf planet.
Mars is often known as the Red Planet because of it's high amounts of iron-oxide on the surface of the planet.
All of the gas giant planets have rings, but Saturns are by far the most spectacular - and clearly visible through an earth based telescope.
Earth. Scientist were almost about to call earth "Water" instead. The earth is the watery planet because it is has 2/3 of the ratio water/land. Hoped that Helped!!
venus is known as Earths twin due to it being a similar size and composition to Earths.
While many ancient cuvilizations were known fir weaving, Incans have always been known for amazing skills at weaving.
do you mean red planet? if so Mars is referred to as the red planet. never heard of the rad planet...sorry if that's what you meant.
Probably because it is a solid surrounded by liquid molten rock and iron and has its own chemistry and physics.
There is no written evidence that the Ancient Hebrews knew about any planets other than Earth.
It depends where you are. Some planets can be seen overhead atdifferent times at latitudes up to about 24 or 25 degrees, but athigher latitudes they are never overhead. They are highest in thesky at midnight in the winter. At that time they are passingthrough the constellations of Taurus and Gemini …when seen from thenorthern hemisphere, or Ophiuchus and Sagittarius from the southernhemisphere. That applies to all eight planets. (MORE)
I think you mean extra solar planets. Technically, all planets except Earth are "extraterrestrial." At last report there were almost 900 of them, with more to follow. They aren't a "group" in the usual sense, just a category.
they are rocky and have terrain areas the rest of the planets are all gas
All the ones further out than the Earth, in contrast to the ones with inner orbits, called 'hot' planets.
The history of the planets had nothing to do with humans. Humansused the planets as religious symbols.
That would be Jupiter because of its size. It is so big roughly1400 Earths can fit inside it.
Generally I'd say Jupiter, but Uranus and Venus also have the same gaseous stripes as Jupiter. Take a look at some satellite pictures of the planets and decide for yourself
There were several of them. "Ancient" usually concerns theCivilizations that existed anytime between about 4,000 BC until thefirst century AD. Most well-known are the Sumerian, Mesopotamianand Persian civilizations and the Egyptian, Greek and Romancivilizations. In the Americas, the Inca and Maya ci…vilizations,although younger, sometimes also are counted as 'ancient'civilizations. (MORE)
This can be seen in thelegacies of the Romans in religion, the alphabet, language, thecalendar, law, architecture and literature. Christianity developedfrom a religion among a small group of Jews (who lived in Judea,which was part of the Roman Empire) into a mass religion in theRoman days. It sp…read around the Roman Empire. It became statereligion. Catholic Christianity and Orthodox Christianity developedduring the Later Roman Empire. They were originally called Latin orWestern Christianity and Greek or Eastern Christianityrespectively. The former was the main form of Christianity in thewestern part of the Roman Empire and the latter was the main formof Christianity in the eastern part of the Roman Empire. Western Europeanlanguages have adopted and adapted the Latin alphabet. The onlyletters in the English language which do not come from the Latinalphabet are J, U and W. Italian, French,Spanish, Portuguese, and Romanian are languages derived from Latin(Romance languages). Many Latin words or words of Latin origin haveentered English via two routes. One was that Latin was the languageof the church in the Middle Ages. The other was the Norman conquestof England. French became the court language and many French wordsentered into the English language. These words are usually of Latinorigin. Many internationalwords in medicine, law and theology are Latin. The calendar we use isthe Gregorian calendar. It is named after the minor modificationsmade by the calendar instituted by Julius Caesar (Julian calendar)by Pope Gregory XII in 1582. Therefore, we basically use the Romancalendar. We also use translations of the Roman names for themonths. Roman law becameinfluential through the Corpus Juris Civilis, a collection of bookswhich reviewed imperial laws going back 400 years (to the time ofHadrian) and was commissioned by the emperor Justinian I. Itscrapped obsolete or unnecessary laws, made changes when necessaryand clarified obscure passages. Its aim was to put the laws intobooks (previously they were written on many different scrolls),harmonise conflicting views among jurists which arose fromcenturies of poorly organised development of Roman law and have auniform and coherent body of law. It was rediscovered in a libraryin Pisa in 1070. It became the foundation of the training of thenascent profession of lawyers in Europe in the Middle Ages andRenaissance. It has been used to compile the civil law of manymodern nations. The Romans influencedEuropean architecture, sculpture and painting until the early 20thcentury. They influenced the art of the Renaissance (14th-15thcentury) Baroque (17th-18th century) and Neoclassicism (18th-20thcentury, and is still sometimes used today). Palladian architecturewas also based on Roman architecture. It was popular from the 17thcentury to the 20th century and was often used for publicbuildings. Latin literature was very influential in Europeanliterature until the mid-20th century. (MORE)
