what types of geographical features helped settlements grow and succeed?
Usually, the earliest settlements occurred and grew where there were these types of things:
easy access to water (river, spring, artesian well, etc.)
easy access to a large amount of arable land
easy access to ways to travel and transport goods (rivers were best for earliest people)
clearly defensible positions (for safety)
the types are forests,river,mountains,or oceans
I really need help on this question too
