Ancient civilizations were effected by the geography of were they were living. Cities were built near bodys of water (lakes, Oceans, Rivers, ect.) because it provided them with fertile soil, transportation, food and water, larger numbers of animals to hunt, and good hygiene. Stable food sources were a big part on how you than lived. If animals had a place to stay stabily, so did you. Than you would be able to settle down as well. Some civilitions were made in areas withaverage temperature as well. Geography also occasionally provided natural barriers. Natural barriers kept out enemies, etc. When there were none, cultural diffusion was more likely to happen.

Geography impacted the development of past civilizations because it determines how successful they become and how much they can benefit from their geography or suffer from it. For example, the geography of Ancient Greece was very mountainous and not much fertile land. This led to the need for trade because they could not grow many crops and also individual city-states without unity because they were each blocked off from each other by the mountains. This eventually led to a civil war in Greece and then the downfall of Ancient Greece.

Geography refers to the layout physically of the land in an area. The geography of ancient China was similar to most other geography, including the river valley civilizations, in that it dealt with the changing of the seasons, river travel, mountains, valleys, and desert areas.

A surplus of food in a society means that not all are required to farm to survive. In the ancient river civilizations, that opened the door to the development of crafts and other occupations and helped the people to form real civilizations.

A simple gaze at a map of the ancient civilizations indicates that the first Civilizations of the world built their societies near rivers and seas. This was due to the ancient man being heavily dependent on farming so the rivers and the seas helped him in his everyday farming activities.
