MESOPOTAMIA: TIGRIS EUPHRATES (3500-1200 BC) The area that is called Mesopotamia is an ancient region of land located between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers that saw the rise of many civilizations. Because of the relationship to the two rivers, these civilizations, like many modern-day cities, thrived culturally. Some of the civilizations of Mesopotamia are well documented; others only lasted a few years and not much is known about their history. Sumer, Assyria, Akkad and Babylon are a few of the famous civilizations, each leaving a lasting impression on humanity. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.

Much advancement was made during the rule of these civilizations. The Sumerians are credited with the creation of the first system of writing, irrigation, an advanced knowledge of mathematics, and the twelve month calendar, among many other inventions and innovations. Around 1200 BC, Mongolian forces destroyed Mesopotamia’s irrigation systems, leading to the downfall of this area and its civilizations. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
