Greek and Romans civilizations
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.
The heritage of the so-called Byzantine Empire were the Greek and Roman civilisations. The Byzantine Empire was the continuation of the Roman Empire. This term has been coined… by historians to indicate the eastern part of the Roman Empire after the fall of the western part. This part of the Roman Empire continued to exist for nearly 1,000 years). The so-called "Byzantines" did not even know this term. They called their empire Imperium Romanum , Imperium Romanorum (Empire of the Romans) , or Romania in Latin or or Basileia Rhomaion, Arche ton Rhomaion or Rhomania , which were the same terms in Greek. The Term Romania was not related to the country which was later called Romania (it means land of the Romans). The term Byzantine was chosen by a German historian in the 16th century as a derivation from Byzantium, a Greek city which evolved along Roman lines under Roman rule and which was then redeveloped, turned into an imperial capital and renamed Constantinople (City of Constantine) by the Roman emperor Constantine the Great in 330. It is used to indicate the fact that not long after the fall of the western part of the Roman Empire, this part of the empire became centred on Greece and Greek in character after it lost most of its non-Greek territories. Greek replaced Latin as the official language of this empire in 620, some 150 years after the fall of the western part. Both the terms Byzantine and Byzantine Empire became common in Western Europe in the 19th century.
Renaissance scholars investigated the civilizations around the northern Mediterranean, especially the Greeks and the Romans.
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"

This depends on your definintion of civilization. There was Babylon, which was a mere city. The first true known nation was Egypt.
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.
Because the Greeks and Romans give off excellent information about us, and the way they lived back then. It educates us in very different ways including the past, how our gove…rnment developed and ect.. As a matter of fact the creator of math was Greek... we use Roman and Greek objects everyday, such as doors, baths, door frames, fireplaces, ect..
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.
The Europeans were inspired by the Greco-Roman times, so they created the Renaissance that helped to spread sophisticated culture throughout Europe. However, Northern Europe w…asn't affected by the Renaissance until later on, when they got into Secularism (the principle that possessions are first to religion).
