Civilizations leave remnants when they are conquered or die out. The remnants can be dated in different ways. Some civilizations have left written evidence behind that contain clues to the time they existed. A lot depends on the natural forces of nature and how the leftovers weather. The "first" civilization dates back to 4000 BCE. It was a collection of city states that had central populations up to 65000. They are presumed to have had the first written language, libraries, schools, dams, irrigation canals, and active industry. They are presumed to have invented the wheel and the first carts.

This information is available because it was recorded and the desert environment preserved it.
