MIDDLE EAST – 3500BC – 3500BC

Farming[1] has been established for thousands of years in the Middle East, and in the river valleys of ancient Mesopotamia[2] the first true civilization in world history of mankind is appearing, that of the Sumerians.

The Sumerians[3] live in large communities of many thousands of people – the first cities. Along with many other advances they are developing the techniques of writing, on which most future human progress will depend.

A second civilization is also beginning to emerge, that of Ancient Egypt[4] in the Nile Valley.
