In what ways did geography and climates affect the development of human society?
The earliest humans spent most of their time looking for food as hunters and gatherers. They developed agriculture when a combination of their own skills coupled with a beneficial climate and adequate water supplies. It's notable that the earliest agricultural communites grew up along the great rivers, Nile, Euphrates, Tigris, and Indus. With the beginning of farming, people had more leisure to specialize and develop laws, writing and religion.
