What was the most important ancient 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 foundations 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.

Why are ancient European civilization important? If we are to measure the importance of civilizations, we must ask how we are measuring it. African civilizations are important… in many ways that you may not know about. For example the Nubian culture made great contributions through their trade in many natural resources but most importantly in cattle. Nubia was part of the "agricultural revolution" that saw man using animal husbandry and farming instead of the hunter/gatherer society. Egypt gave us the clock, the calender, paper, use of text, the concept of an afterlife, the obelisk, columns, and the zodiac. Egyptian culture was the major force in influencing the ancient Greek culture, as well. For more information, I would also recommend reading about the Kush, the sub-Saharan iron age civilizations, and how important the African civilizations were to trade for European and Middle Eastern 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.
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!
they were important due to the fact that they connected many different civilizations. rivers helped the spread of different cultures and religions. they allowed civilizations …to come in contact with one another and trade products they had for ones that they needed. also helped the spread of technology and helped some civilizations conquests and reigns.
