WHAT ROLE DID GEOGRAPHY PLAY IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF EARLY CIVILIZATIONS?
They didn't have a lot of snow boots, nor heavy clothes. They had to grow their own food on fertile, watered land.
Early civilizations, like Sumerian, Egyptian, and Indus, grew up along mighty rivers. These rivers provided water and good soil for crops. They also made it easier for people and their goods to move from place to place.
