how does geography affect the development of a civilization?

  • Social studies -

    Most people want a moderate climate, fresh water, fertile land, and access to trade routes.

    When ancient peoples settled in river valleys, they had all of those things. They were then able to develop agriculture and free up people to invent writing, consolidate laws, and improve on religious structure.
