The farms in Egypt were lacated all around the Nile River. When the river floods, it makes the area around it very fertilized because when the river floods, it carries silt (fine sand, clay, or other material carried by running water and deposited as a sediment, especially in a channel or harbor) and deposits it in the land. So the British used Egypt’s resources to feed their people in Africa. There were a lot of reasons Britain had to colonize Egypt, the most important reason is the Suez Canal. The Suez Canal was completed in 1869, which connected the Mediterranean Sea with the Red Sea.
But how did the Nile shape Ancient Egypt? The Nile River running 4,160 miles is used for transportation, water, gathering food, and bathing to keep away disease. If the Nile was not present what would happen? The Nile River formed Ancient Egypt because the Egyptians believed in it and used the water to developed crops. More and more people coming in made it a bigger population.
Geography's effect on the early North American colonies is undeniable, but the way location affected the people of the early colonies is much more significant. Primarily, the economy was the biggest aspect of life affected by geography. From the Atlantic Ocean acting as a barrier from the New World to the Old World, and to the climate difference between the cold winters of the New England colonies to the hot summers in the Southern colonies, each played a central role in the development of the colonies. Good or bad, geography was always an essential factor economically for those who lived in the early southern, middle, and northern colonies. Geography has continually influenced the way people live and the early colonies were no different.
Religion played an important role in civilization as government laws and divine kingship derived from it. Both civilizations were quite similar, but acquired some differences unique to each civilization. These differences include the environment, divine kingship, and sense of security from either nature or law. The idea and practices of ancient Mesopotamia originated from the Sumerians. Moreover, both Mesopotamian and Egyptian civilization diffused their practices and ideas to other ancient civilizations like the Hebrews and the Greeks.
Some states thrived under the trade, while others economically deteriorated so drastically that they continue to suffer today. Despite the consequences, the trade connected the world closer than ever before. A main reason why Europeans colonized the New World with such swiftness and determination lay in the drinks of nobles and the soil of peasants. Sugar was in high demand during the 1500s and 1600s, and the fertile coasts of the Carribean and Brazil made for a perfect environment. Sugar cane was just the tip of the iceberg: Europeans soon discovered crops native to the Americas that heavily impacted world economy, a prime example being the potato.
During the bronze age both Ancient Mesopotamians and Ancient Egyptians developed forms of religion that highly reflected their habitat. They had many similarities in their politics even though they had completely different forms of government. Both societies were also known for their discoveries in art and technology. They developed their own forms of writing, different tools and architecture.
The Egyptian Middle Kingdom and Babylonia had many similarities related in geography. Despite this they also had numerous distinct differences. Fundamental similarities manifested as care for the people by the rulers which had recently developed in both societies. As the rulers were no longer concerned with only themselves, but the citizens as well. Both societies had military protection although Babylon organized and conquered the Fertile Crescent and later Egypt.
Also, the rivers allowed the Indus people to create different input and output water systems, for plumbing, storage, and bathing uses because bathing also was a part of their sanitary society. This new technology was way too advanced, for their age, even though they were being very peaceful, and had no wars in their rise. The Indus civilization 's land had a natural boundary as well, which was the Himalayan mountains and the Hindu Kush. This had prevented an attack from the north and northeastern side. The area in which the people of this civilization settled in, allowed them easier farming.
There where many positives to the steel plow. But there where a few negatives to it as well. The production of the steel plow caused greenhouse gases to go into the atmosphere. The bending and molding of steel requires heat which was made by fires which creates a greenhouse gas. It did however give the economy a small boost.
In the earlier times the Israelites lived in Egypt and were explained to be a fruitful and multiplied people. Under the law of Egypt’s king, the Israelites had permission to live in Egypt and work the land. However, the King felt as if the Isralites were a threat to his reign because there were so many of them, so he dicided to deal with them “shrewdly” (Exod. 1:10). Therefore Pharaoh assigned them degrading work in harmful envirnments and began to control their population growth. The Egyptian masters worked the Israelites ruthlessly (exod. 1:13,14) and made them slaves.
Mesopotamia was a successful civilization because of it 's farming. I know this beause If they weren 't successful in farming, they couldn 't build up theire civilization. The text stated that the two rivers would bring in silt, which made rich farming land. This in turn, made them need less farmers, so people got other jobs.
It was also important for factory owners to deliver goods to customers far away from where these goods were manufactured. One improvement they made to help transportation was making a system of roads. This made it a lot easier for travelling from state to state, and even allowed people to pass through the Appalachian Mountains to more Western states with ease. Though the system of roads helped a lot, river travel was still a lot faster. The Northern states made canals to get across the North like the canal from the Hudson River to Lake Erie.
The Columbian Exchange was the process of exchanging animals, agriculture, and diseases. The most important change that I believe occurred was the agriculture exchange. The old world introduced more tropical fruits than what was available as well as grains. They brought over cash crops such as sugar and coffee beans because in Europe those were the crops that were priced the highest. In fact, it was so lucrative to grow sugar in the Carribean, they imported all of their food out so they had more room to grow it.
Shang dynasty and the Mesopotamia civilization are two major ancient civilizations in Asia, they shares the same continent and also some similarities in economy and technological development, but different natural condition helps two civilization develop their own distinction such as their different political system. For the economy, Two civilizations shares many similarities and several difference. Both civilization relies on fertile soil and River to grow foods to increase population. In Mesopotamia, people relies on two main river, the Tigris and the Euphrates. In Shang, people depend on the water in Yellow river.
