The Euphrates River.
the Persians controlled most of the land.
Most ancient civilizations needed the fertile land, food sources (water-based fowl, fish, etc.), and trading opportunities found near rivers to support their community. Ov…er time, commerce and population would grow, and with it would develop a full-fledged civilization. They could then use their clever location to defend themselves from attackers, to reach other main hubs of civilization to trade, and to establish a navy. hi guys
Agricultural areas, preferably near trade routes.
Because water is the single most important element to a human being. For any civilisation to flourish, they need water for their crops, for their domestic animals and, of cour…se, for themselves. It is much easier to build your house next to a river than to haul water for miles. Other animals also need water, so it is much easier to hunt them when they come down to drink. The mud near rivers is often full of nutrients which help plants grow strong and it is also cooler near rivers because of the evaporation. If a group of people are constantly struggling for food, they cannot truly develop a culture or a writing system or build vast cities. Thus, the great cultures we hear about today are the ones that built along rivers and had the time and resources to develop.
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.
I think that because of the Himalayas growth in their height, they protected Indian subcontinent from the North.
The Inca lived in modern day Peru. One major city was Machu Picchu. The capital was located in Cusco, Peru. The empire stretched from Columbia to Chile.
This depends on your definintion of civilization. There was Babylon, which was a mere city. The first true known nation was Egypt.
In the southeren part of the fertile crescent
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.
In ancient Egypt, the geography helped the people there live. There were many river systems such as the Tigris and Eurphrates. Those two are the main rivers. People decided to… settle near those river systems because it would help their farming and livestock. Because of the many rivers of Egypt and Mesopotamia, they experienced many floods. Just like in Ancient India, Egypt and Mesopotamia suffered from these floods when it would drown livestock and crops, yet the floods helped them thrive. The way it helped was by depositing silt onto the land. This silt caused fertile soil for the crops to grow on. Egypt is right next to the Red Sea and Mediterranean Sea so I inferred that a good part of Egypt was sandy.
It was blocked off from everything else. They had little knowledge of everything else. There was little transportation through mountains.
