What are 5 ways that the geography in ancient china similar to the other river valley civilizations?
What is the evidence that scholars use to argue that the Indus valley civilization was more egalitarian with less class differentiation than the civilizations of the Nile valley and Mesopotamia?
I've heard that the evidence is bones from excavations, which show that nobody starved. This means that they shared the food equally. Another evidence is that the (quiet expensive and difficult-to-produce) bronze was common among the people in the Indus. In Nile Valley and Mesopotamia it was considered luxury to have things made of bronze, but in Indus Valley everybody had it.
The Indus Vally was a very early civilization but it was not the 1st, there were civilizations during pre-history many many thousands of years ago. The first civilizations that we have proof of are the ones who settled between the Tigris and Euphrates river; Mesopotamia (in modern day Iraq). The 1st civilization in the Indus Valley in the Harrapan society but not much is known because all there records are under the water table so…
Mesopotamia is roughly the region now known as Iraq, one of the places where civilization first started (in the form of city states.) "Meso" means "middle" or "between" and "potamia" refers to rivers; Mesopotamia is the area in and around the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

Which geographic factor was most important to the development of the early river valley civilizations?
The earliest civilizations known, where developed along the river valleys of the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. It even says in the Bible the the garden of Eden was near the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. The Mesopotamia, was one of the earliest civilizations, and they were based off of those two rivers too.
The Civilization Empires of Mesopotamia were lost after the aggressive invader from Iran the Sassanids came into power. They neglected the canals and irrigation ditched controlling the Tigris and Euphrates leaving the river valley ruined. The people of Mesopotamia left the modern world with the principles of astronomy and mathematics, the coronation of kings, and the symbol of the tree of life.
The quality of building in the Indus Valley cities declined. Gradually, the great cities fell into decay. The cities on Indus were well planned out, they had precise planning of roads and buildings, also had sewers. This was different, because other civilizations (books example; Mesopotamia) had buildings and roads all over, unplanned areas, and everything was disorganized.
The Fertile Crescent was an area in ancient Mesopotamia around the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. The Nile River is a river in Egypt. In ancient times, these were regions with fertile soil because of their respective rivers. These rivers also had an upper and lower region. Agriculture was important to both civilizations.
