They exchanged many things, such as physical items and information, and cultural exchanges. These exchanges were everywhere, and there is no specific event or person involved.

Social Order (customs, education, family life, class and caste, leisure activities, decision-making, gender roles) All the classes had limited women’s roles.
Although there were some similar farming techniques between the two civilizations, there were many more differences. The Mayans had to deal with extremely wet plains and rough mountains. They built terraces, raised beds, and canals to irrigate water and make use of all the farming space possible. Meanwhile in Egypt, they also built canals to irrigate water from nearby rivers. However, they farmed on dry plains which meant there was no need for farmers to build good farm land.
This gave them an advantage in survival being that they did not have to travel for food. Instead, they could give up their nomadic lifestyle and settle down in one distinct place. With all of this contemporary information, the Europeans knew how to make do in
The Southeast has fertile coastal plains, river valleys, mountains, and swamps. I think that it rains one part of the year to create a flood providing the rich soil for the crops to grow. Just like the other Native American religions the Southeast’s tribe’s religions were Animism and
The picture that depicts homes in the cliffs were built by the Anasazi who lived in the Southwest (Four Corners) culture region and the long houses were built by the Iroquois who lived in the Great Lakes (New York) culture region. The Anasazi modified their environment by irrigating the desert, building roads, and by building homes into the cliff because they needed to be able to farm in the dry desert, travel and trade, and also be able to defend themselves from their warlike neighbors. The Iroquois, however, modified their environment by clearing land to farm and building the long houses as they did not have to defend against as many attacks. These two different people chose to modify their environments differently because not only were
The Aztecs were a world class society, located in what is now present day Mexico City according to Document A, and in the time period of 1100 CE according to the background essay. Two things the Aztec were well known for were agriculture and human sacriﬁce. However, historians should emphasize the role of agriculture in the Aztec civilization.

The Egyptian also had to rebuild their home after the flood destroyed them.
Ancient China, bound by the Himalayan Mountains, the Gobi Desert, the Pacific Ocean, and the steppes to the north, was geographically isolated from other agricultural regions on the continent. The Yellow River Valley is often referred to as the Cradle of Chinese Civilization, however Chinese culture also developed in the Yangtze River and Huia River Valleys. The only real agricultural area, the North China Plain, accounted for just 12% of the country. They domesticated animals, established farming; growing millet, wheat, other grains, as well as soybeans and cabbage. They also fashioned weapons.
I believe that in Egypt a complex society emerged because of the location they chose to inhabit. The Egyptians had a more productive and protected area of land. The Nile River was predictable and made it easier to grow crops (Wallech, 2013, p. 54). In addition, the Egyptians had only one of four frontiers susceptible to invasion (p. 54).
They relied on it for irrigation purposes in order for their crops to grow, as well as having a significant cultural tie to the Gila and Salt River. However, when the white settlers came and put down roots near their land, the water that was so ingrained in their society all but dried completely. Not until as recently as 2004 did the Pima gain
Ancient civilizations began in areas that had arable land and other features such as rivers. Civilizations succeeded in these environments because they could settle down and not live a nomadic lifestyle. Because the land was arable, agriculture prospered and people relied on the geography to grant them the elements needed for survival. In China and Egypt, geography greatly influenced and affected the lives of the people living there because of the prosperous rivers and large natural barriers.
Archaeological site, Cowboy Wash, is located in South Western Colorado and holds the ancient history of the early Anasazi people (Walker, 1997). Cowboy Wash was excavated by Soil Systems Inc. as part of their Ute Mountain Irrigated Lands Archaeological Project. They constructed the project between 1992-1998 (Billman 1997,1998,1999). The Anasazi people began as a hunter gatherer culture and slowly moved into an agricultural society. One of their main questionable cultural activities is their participation in cannibalism, the eating of human remains.
