"By about 3100 B.C.E., a king from Upper Egypt (in the south) who according to tradition was named Menes, consolidated his rule over the entire Egyptian Land." ~ Dennis Sherman, Joyce Salisbury.. Its commonly accepted that the Egyptian empire lasted from 3100 BCE to 1000 BCE.
Yes, because Egypt was first founded around 2200-2700 BC.. ___________________. While it is true that Egypt's history goes back thousands of years, and the power and influence of ancient Egypt were great, the current political, cultural, ethnic and religious culture of Egypt has little to do with …those ancient roots. There are connections, to be sure, but we hardly see the 'ancient civilization' functioning when we visit Egypt today. ( Full Answer )
\nDescribing ancient Rome as the "best civilization" is an opinion. Many consider it to be one of the greatest empires of all time, but it depends on who you are. The Roman Empire, at its peak, covered vast areas of land, including North Africa, Egypt, the Middle East, up into the middle of Europe,… even extending as far east as India by the conquest of Alexander the Great. The Empire had governors over sections of land, instead of having the emperor rule it all personally, which, naturally, made it more organized and efficient. A large complex of roads also was built by the Romans, usually paved with smooth stones, with rest spots as well on some parts of the road. ( Full Answer )

Why are ancient European civilization important? If we are to measure the importance of civilizations, we must ask how we are measuring it. African civilizations are important in many ways that you may not know about. For example the Nubian culture made great contributions through their trade in man…y natural resources but most importantly in cattle. Nubia was part of the "agricultural revolution" that saw man using animal husbandry and farming instead of the hunter/gatherer society. Egypt gave us the clock, the calender, paper, use of text, the concept of an afterlife, the obelisk, columns, and the zodiac. Egyptian culture was the major force in influencing the ancient Greek culture, as well. For more information, I would also recommend reading about the Kush, the sub-Saharan iron age civilizations, and how important the African civilizations were to trade for European and Middle Eastern civilizations.

The Aztecs in South America, Mayans in Central America, Incans in Peru, Romans in Europe, Egyptians in northern Africa , Babylonians, Assyrians, Sumerians, and Persians in modern Iraq, Greeks in Greece, Chinese in China (longest-lasting empire in the world, too), and probably many others that I did…n't mention. ........................................................................... Civilizations in this context I will be assuming to be complex societies that are categorized by having an increasingly dominant social form (e.g. complex division of people into different jobs/roles, the emergency of literacy and literate class normally characterized by a political and religious hierarchies, monumental public buildings that were built using skilled labour all supported by a particularly intensive agricultural system to support it all meaning they are all located near fresh water bodies/rivers. Ancient Civilizations are deemed to have emerged around 6,000 years ago in four main regions: . The Lower Tigris and Euphrates Valley (Summerian/Mesopotamia Civilization); . The valley of the Nile (Ancient Egypt Civilization); . The Indus Valley around Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro (Indus Civilization); . The Yellow River around An-yang (Chinese Civilization). The early civilizations of America (Inca/Mayan Civilizations), Greeks (Minoan/Mycenaean Civilizations), Korean, Persia, Romans emerged considerably later, and are not considered ancient.

A few Civilizations defeated the Egyptians, resulting in what are know as Intermediary periods. The Nubians, The Hyksos Kings (Isrealites), The Persian Empire all ruled in Egypt for short periods. Alexander the Great, actually liberated the Egyptians from the Persian Empire, who ruled in Egypt fo…r around 200 years. The Persians where probably the true defeaters of the Egyptian civilization, because that would be the last time Egypt would be ruled by native Egyptians, Egypt would be ruled by Greeks for the next 300 Years. The Romans conquered Egypt in about 30 BC, when Octavian defeated Mark Anthony and Annexed Egypt to the Roman Empire, and this is generally considered to be the end of the rule of the pharaoh's.. >> >>Greek or Macedonian, Alexander the Great in any case.

There were several elements that would have been encountered in their simple substance form and used by ancient people. They would not have been recognised as 'elements', but they were certainly exploited in the various ancient cultures Copper and gold in their native form as simple substances have… been used to make ornaments for at least 7000 years, and silver perhaps only a little less. Sulfur is encountered in its simple substance form as a yellow encrustation around volcanic fumraoles and in similar settings. Carbon as coal outcrops to the surface in many places, or, as charcoal, it would have been produced in early campfires and used for fuel, drawings, and as body paint. When the smelting process, initially to produce copper from its ores, was discovered, a new phase of civilization began. We refer to it as the "Bronze Age". This innovation led fairly rapidly to the discovery and use of lead, tin, and mercury. Much later, just a few centuries BC, the secret of making iron metal (basically very hot forced-air furnaces) was discovered, and we entered the "iron age". So there were basically just 9 of the simple substances we now recognize as elements known to early civilisations: The 7 metals copper, gold, silver, mercury, tin, lead, and iron, and the 2 non-metals carbon and sulfur.

It didn't, as they didn't have them. Some groups/tribes did use certain mashed up branches for a similar purpose though.
A difficult question. Consider the astronomical circles at Naba Playa, in Nubia, which some believe reflect stellar alignments as far back as 16000 to 15000 years ago. But others interpret the same evidence as less than 10 000 years ago. Some of the Egyptian Pharaohs may have come from this regi…on. As to the WHY, there is safety in numbers and a communal aggregation has so many advantages that must be regarded as inevitable. The sharing of tasks, which in turn leads to specialization of tasks. The economies of scale didn't have to wait for Adam Smith to appear. Given the origin of Homo not too far south, this area with its rivers and plains would be a natural settling place.

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. ( Full Answer )
It was basically migration from other parts of Northern Africa, such as Palestine and Syria that originally founded Lower Egypt. Upper Egypt was formed by other migrations from what we would now know as southern Iraq.
The first ancient civilization was Mesopotamia (Present day Iraq). I know this because this was the first thing I learned in my history book.
People tend to expose their prejudices and other biases when answering questions of this type. Remember that we don't always know with certainty which culture invented a thing first. Many cultures reinvented items that were invented earlier or at about the same time. Numerous inventions are di…sputed. Here are some of the least controversial ones. The Sumerians gave us time and angles. There are 60 seconds in a minute (not 10) and 60 minutes in an hour (not 10). A circle is 360 degrees (=60*60) (not 10*10) degrees. They gave us the first writing, the first types of laws, bread, biscuits and cakes, beer, bricks, the wheel, the chariot, the modern plough, the zodiac (of star constellations), sail boats and (probably also) glass. Egyptians gave us pyramids and scary mummies. However they also invented wigs, the first locks, the first bellows, and the first large dam. They were very talented builders of monuments and they greatly advanced the skills of furniture-making, ship-building, jewellery-making and glass-making. In addition they made the first modern-style cosmetics. Ancient Indians (Indus valley) offered us advances in mathematics, astrology, literature, medicine, dance and food technologies. They developed several irrigation and drainage systems. They gave us cotton. At about the same time as the Sumerians and Egyptians they gave us bricks, granarys and assembly halls. The Greeks left us with democracy and the idea of freedom, justice including trial by jury, history as distinct from propaganda, the idea of proof, modern medicine, philosophy, sciences such as physics and biology and modern literature and theater. They provided great advances in poetry and art, architecture, and mathematics. They gave us the first real understanding of music and several popular sports as well as beginning the Olympic games. The ancient Chinese gave us paper, pasta and noodles, fast food, simple printing, silk, gunpowder, concrete, wheelbarrows, flame throwers, toilet roll, paper money and football (yes they invented a game very similar to modern soccer more than 2000 years ago). The ancient people of South America and Central America gave us chocolate, vanilla, potatoes, popcorn, peanuts and many other foods. They gave us rubber, chewing gum, terrace farming, freeze-dried food, hydroponics, cable cars, suspension bridges and obsidian knives. They reinvented beer and concrete. They gave us many types of medicines (including the world's first contraceptive pills) and some dangerous drugs (such as cocaine). Also they were great architects, builders, artists and artisans.

Rome is the most ancient civilization or China, or Egypt or Greece, or Persia, or Olmec, or Mesopotamia, or Inca, or Itruscan or Ottoman
Most ancient civilizations built their societies around rivers (ex: Tigris, Euphrates, Yellow, Nile). They did this because rivers are fresh water and supply water to drink as well as for irrigation (agriculture). Food and water supplies are a must for a civilization!
I think the better question to ask would be what are four examples of ancient Maya city-states. Here are the most famous four of the classical Maya. Tikal, Calakmul, Palenque, and Copan.
This answer depends on what successful means. If it means how long it lasted, then China is the most successful civilization following by the Byzantine empire. In terms of contributions to science, medicine, philosophy and the arts the Hellenic civilizations are the most successful. In terms of expa…nsion, Rome, Mongol empire and more recently Britain were the most successful. I go with Greece cause I'm a science person. ( Full Answer )

They are remembered for many reason, almost too many to explain.One of the most obvious is the Mayan Calendar. The Mayan Calendarconsists of three "rounds" the the biggest round that is in theoutside is the Solar Round; this round has 365 symbolscorresponding to the 365 days in a year (hence the 'So…lar round')The other two rounds rotate around the out side or the Solar Roundand are called the Sacred Rounds. The inner round haws 13 symbolsas the Mayans believed that the celestial realm had 13 layers, andthe outer sacred round had 20 symbols as the Mayans believed thatthere were 20 months in a year. The Mayans however didn't use the 4positions we use to signify a year( e.g. 1996 = one thousand. ninehundred. ninety. six. or 1. 9. 9. 6.) the Mayans used a modified'base 20' arithmetical system called the Long Count Calendar andused 5 positions. (e.g. 2012= 126.96.36.199.0) One other reason theMayan Calendar is so special, is the fact that it takes 52 yearsfor the Mayan Calendar to match the same symbols again. Another thing the Mayans are remembered for is the Meso-Americangame called Pok-ta-Pok. This game demonstrates strength andcreativity. The game was played by mainly men, but woman and evenchildren were known to play. The game can be played one on one orwith two teams of 11 players. It is played in a 'Arena' that isshaped like a rectangle. at both ends of the arena there was a ringsuspended from the wall. The aim of the game was to get the ball;this ball was made of solid rubber from the native trees andweighted up to ten pounds, through the rings, however you couldonly use your hips( players wore thick belts to protect their hipsfrom the ball) feet and shoulders. It is said on special occasionsthat the winning team would be sacrificed in honor of the Gods, asthe Gods could only have the Best, and the losing team had thedishonor of not being sacrificed. The Mayans were also remembered for their architecture; take forexample one of their temples. It consists of four sides, each sidehad 91 steps and at the top there is an extra step. This is specialdue to the fact that 91 (times) X 4= 364 and 364 (plus)+ the 1 extra step is 365 which is also the number of days in a year. ( Full Answer )
You would have to be more specific as to what law you are inquiring about. Civil Law is based on a written code. The Romans had written laws on numerous things, adultery, taxation, trade, citizenship, water usage, clothing, marriage, etc. etc. etc.

Because your question gives no indication as to which ancient civilization you mean, your answer will have to be a generic one. Ancient civilizations all used natural resources, water being the prime necessity. They grew and developed along rivers where they not only had drinking/bathing water but i…rrigation for their crops and transportation along the rivers. A second resource that the ancient civilizations used was their manpower in the form of their armies. They all had some type of military that they used either for defense or offense. ( Full Answer )
All ancient states had an army to protect themselves from raids and from attacks by other states. Moreover, Rome would not have been able to create the 15th largest empire in history without an army and without military conquest. The Roman army begun right with the foundation of Rome in 753 BC. Ro…mulus, the founder of Rome and its first king, created an army with three legions of 1,000 men each. The army was also used for expansionist aims by Romulus himself and by Tullus Hostilius and Ancus Martius (the 3rd and 4th king). Tarquinius Priscus (the 5th king) fought wars of defence against attacks by neighbours (other Latin cities, the Sabines and Etruscan cities) and also expanded Roman territories. Up to this point expansion was local, in the area around Rome. The 7th and last king, Tarquinius Superbus, was a tyrant whose regime was based on an economy of plunder. Together with allied Latin cities he expanded the territory of Rome to a regional level, pushing south and towards the sea to loot rich cities. The monarchy was then overthrown and a republic was created. During its first century, the Roman Republic had to defend itself at first against neighbours (Etruscan cities, the Sabines and other Latin cities) and later against the Volsci and Aequi who were raining Latin territories from the south. The first significant conquest of the Republic was the capture of the Etruscan city of Veii, near Rome (396 BC) Rome expanded into central and southern Italy through wars she fought against the Samnites, a people to their south (First, Second and Third Samnite War, 343-341 BC, 216-304 BC and 298-290 BC). This was the beginning of the Roman Empire. Later, more wars and military conquests led to Rome annexing all the lands around the Mediterranean Sea, Western Europe up to the river Rhine, Southeastern Europe and northern Iraq. The empire covered parts of three continents, Europe, western Asia and North Africa. ( Full Answer )

This can be seen in thelegacies of the Romans in religion, the alphabet, language, thecalendar, law, architecture and literature. Christianity developedfrom a religion among a small group of Jews (who lived in Judea,which was part of the Roman Empire) into a mass religion in theRoman days. It sp…read around the Roman Empire. It became statereligion. Catholic Christianity and Orthodox Christianity developedduring the Later Roman Empire. They were originally called Latin orWestern Christianity and Greek or Eastern Christianityrespectively. The former was the main form of Christianity in thewestern part of the Roman Empire and the latter was the main formof Christianity in the eastern part of the Roman Empire. Western Europeanlanguages have adopted and adapted the Latin alphabet. The onlyletters in the English language which do not come from the Latinalphabet are J, U and W. Italian, French,Spanish, Portuguese, and Romanian are languages derived from Latin(Romance languages). Many Latin words or words of Latin origin haveentered English via two routes. One was that Latin was the languageof the church in the Middle Ages. The other was the Norman conquestof England. French became the court language and many French wordsentered into the English language. These words are usually of Latinorigin. Many internationalwords in medicine, law and theology are Latin. The calendar we use isthe Gregorian calendar. It is named after the minor modificationsmade by the calendar instituted by Julius Caesar (Julian calendar)by Pope Gregory XII in 1582. Therefore, we basically use the Romancalendar. We also use translations of the Roman names for themonths. Roman law becameinfluential through the Corpus Juris Civilis, a collection of bookswhich reviewed imperial laws going back 400 years (to the time ofHadrian) and was commissioned by the emperor Justinian I. Itscrapped obsolete or unnecessary laws, made changes when necessaryand clarified obscure passages. Its aim was to put the laws intobooks (previously they were written on many different scrolls),harmonise conflicting views among jurists which arose fromcenturies of poorly organised development of Roman law and have auniform and coherent body of law. It was rediscovered in a libraryin Pisa in 1070. It became the foundation of the training of thenascent profession of lawyers in Europe in the Middle Ages andRenaissance. It has been used to compile the civil law of manymodern nations. The Romans influencedEuropean architecture, sculpture and painting until the early 20thcentury. They influenced the art of the Renaissance (14th-15thcentury) Baroque (17th-18th century) and Neoclassicism (18th-20thcentury, and is still sometimes used today). Palladian architecturewas also based on Roman architecture. It was popular from the 17thcentury to the 20th century and was often used for publicbuildings. Latin literature was very influential in Europeanliterature until the mid-20th century. ( Full Answer )
