Best Answer

One of the disadvantages of the Tigris-Euphrates river was its limited use for transportation. The northern stretches were shallow and rocky. The prevailing wind also blew in the same direction as the flow of the river. This meant you could not sail your boat against the current. Boats got upstream by being towed by teams of slaves trudging along the banks.
