In the previous thousand years,[1] the influence of Mesopotamian civilization[2] has spread far and wide, carried by the trade networks radiating outwards from the Sumerian cities. Towns and cities are now scattered over a large part of the Middle East, with outlying regions such as Asia Minor[3] and Iran[4] being drawn into the orbit of urban civilization.

The second great civilization of the ancient world is now well established. Situated in the Nile valley, Egypt[5] has already produced some of the most famous structures in all history, the great Pyramids of Giza.
