The oldest evidence for the beginings of a culture comes from?


What do you mean by "culture"? By some definitions, the first cultures developed in Africa. However, the first civilization originated in Sumer in Mesopotamia (now Iraq) about 3200 B.C. This beginning was closely followed by the Indus River and Egyptian civilizations.
