The Mystery Of Ancient Civilizations!
The earliest civilizations dating back thousands of years still astonish us with their achievements in architecture, science, art, and techniques. Built on the ruins of 10,000 years of advanced cultures such as the Greek, Roman, Mesopotamia, Mayan, Indus, Egyptian, and others - Today's achievements and knowledge is primarily attributable to these Ancient Civilizations through archaeology and written records.
Around the fifth millennia BC (5000-4500 BC) the civilization of Sumer emerged in a swamp region in Mesopotamia. Our knowledge regarding the history of these Sumerians is not yet complete, but writings give evidence to prove that Sumeria was the earliest civilization discovered so far, of populistic, merchant city-states (First parliament consisting of two-chambers). Trade and inventions from the Sumerians accelerated development of Mesopotamia and probably India and Egypt.
