What did the movement of people across the Fertile Crescent result in?
creation of colonies along the Mediterranean
The fertile crescent is not that fertile anymore because of global warming. global warming affects the atmosphere, especially air pollution, and it makes us more vulnerable to the suns heat, as you have noticed maybe that it's very hot lately. the heat has dried up most of the fertile crescent. Well, I may be wrong (although I'm pretty sure I'm not) but I believe the Fertile Crescent is actually no longer fertile because the people…
How did the physical geographic characteristics of mesopotamia affect the development of their civilization?
The physical geographic characteristics of Mesopotamia affected the development of their civilization in a positive way. This is because if not for the river of the Fertile Crescent, the people would not have had a water source to farm with. The land was also made fertile by the silt from the Fertile Crescent.
The fertile Crescent is a boomerang-shaped territory from the eastern Mediterranean to the Persian Gulf. The best farmlands were between the Tigris and the Eufrates Rivers, people settled down there and started to build an irrigation system so that they could use the annual floodings and the fertile silt that the rivers left behind. This territory was called Mesopotamia - between rivers - by the Greeks.

If a religion requires an established priesthood, clear divinities, and a network of…
The ascent of 'civilized' society had much to do with the change from hunting and gathering for food to agriculture.

The sedentary lifestyle, the switch to agriculture and the building of villages and later on of cities spread from there, and into the fertile crescent for the very reason that…
What reason the urban civilizations developed in Europe slower than in the Fertile Crescent was because?
Civilisation rests on a surplus of produce, which allows people to do more than just scratch for a living. In the Fertile Crescent this surplus was readily available as settlement grew. In Europe, the people were a mix of nomads and farmers who struggled for subsistence until they progressively established settled societies and security.
