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
The Safavids (an Sufi Islamic empire developed after the raids of the Mongols and the Black Death in the 14th century) the land East of the Mediterranean and Anatolia, North o…f the Persian Gulf, South of the Caspian Sea. This was Persia and is now modern day Iran, Iraq, and part of Turkey.
His empire included: Macedonia, Asia Minor (Turkey), Persia, and Egypt. He also conquered the island of Cyprus.
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.
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.
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"
At its biggest which was the dawn of the 17th century, they controlled Iraq, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Northern Caucasia, Crimea (up to Don and Volga Rivers), the whole bl…ack sea coast ( it was an inner sea for them), Romania, Wallachia, Moldovia, Hungary, Souther Poland (for some time), parts of Austria, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Greece, the whole Aegan sea including bigger islands like Crete and Cyprus (another inner sea), Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, all small states of Souther shores of Iranian sea, Umman, Yemen, Egypt, Somalia, Eritrea, some parts of Ethiopia (red sea anothe inner sea), Libya, Tunus, Algeria, Morocco (for some time) and Anatolia for sure. In some estimates it is believed that the empire had almost 20 million km2 of land under its administration. Turkey, Bosnia Herzegovina, Syria, Bulgaria, Lebanon
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.
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.
