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.
Mesopotamia and Egypt civilization are two of the oldest civilization in the world. Comparing those two civilizations, there are many similarities and differences from each aspect of their culture. Firstly, both of them spread their civilization along the river, Mesopotamian civilizations expanded from the Tigris and Euphrates rivers and Egypt spread from the Nile River. Secondly, both of two regions had their own writing script, Mesopotamian developed cuneiform script and Egypt developed hieroglyphic script. Furthermore, the nomadic people in those two regions caused lots of rebellions.
In the Nile comic, it presents how crucial is the Nile through out the history. For example, our ancient Egyptian culture is initiated because of the River Nile. In the past, men used to more from place to another one seeking the water and food. So that, the Egyptian man settle down nearby the Nile because it supports him with water and fertilized land to farm. Not only did the ancient Egyptians benefit from the Nile, but the Ottoman Empire also did.
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
Industries such as Texaco, Exxon, Shell, and Reynolds Metals moved in to Louisiana due to the convenience of navigation and fresh water around (McPhee 3). These industries helped make the river popular and known for its importance, “A sustainable restoration of the Mississippi River Delta is a good investment with a high rate of return. Gaining ground is the most successful economic strategy” (Batker). Plenty of money was brought in due to all of the companies that depended on the water from the Mississippi River. There was an attempt to have the Mississippi River captured but the Rabalais that works for the US Army Corps of Engineers tried to prevent it.
The Nile River influenced the ancient Egyptians’ economy, settlement, and culture. The Nile River influenced the ancient Egyptians’ economy. The Nile River allowed for a national ancient Egyptian economy. Unlike other ancient civilizations, Egypt was hundreds of miles long and only a few miles wide and was surrounded by deserts (Doc A).
The natural features of geography protected the Chinese and influenced the way they lived through rivers that provided rich soil for growing crops, mountainous regions providing protection/isolation and the growth of a new crop to China, deserts veering off invaders and a major ocean border. The first natural feature of geography that influenced the Chinese way of life is the Yellow River, or Huang He, a river that travelled across the agricultural land of China, collecting rich and fertile soil along the way. This soil, loess, would sink to the riverbed, creating a thick layer of silt that would allow Chinese people to grow staple foods and catch fish. In the North the staple was wheat and in the south, rice. An example of the Yellow River influencing the way the Chinese people lived is in the map in source 1, drawn by cartographer Cha Yun in 1861-1875, as it shows the river with roots coming out in all directions of the land, conveying how the river provided food and life to the Chinese people.
INTRODUCTION Egypt, a country with a rich cultural heritage rooted in the deepest parts of ancient history. The Nile cutting through the landscape as if it were a life giving artery. 20km from the Nile Delta lies the vast city of Cairo the crown jewel of Egypt .
Hammurabi, who was a king of the “old Babylonian empire”(Jona Lendering, 2004), ruled from 1792 BCE to 1750 BCE for forty-two years and accomplished a great riverine civilization such that no other king had done to the extent of its mastery. The city of Babylon which is located in Mesopotamia is known as “modern day” Iraq which lies between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. These rivers helped in creating rich and fertile soil which allowed humans to plant and grow crops in which they needed to survive. Through trade, humans could communicate with one another and grasp on to new ideas. As a result of the rivers, civilization began to flourish outstandingly.
Ancient Egypt fell between 3000 BC and 1000 BC. Egypt was a powerful Middle Eastern power between 612 and 525 BC. (timemaps) After the Egyptians had made the civilization of Ancient Egypt, they went on to civilize more things.
The Nile river originates in from lakes in Ethiopia and Kenya and ends in the Mediterranean Sea after flowing through Egypt. I think the Nile River shaped the Egyptians because, well there are many reasons. First of all, The Nile river made their rich for farming. The Egyptians called the Nile River the black land meaning, these soils are rich with nutrients for farming.
In 1882 came the most destructive flood of the nineteenth century. After breaking the levees in two hundred and eighty-four crevasses, the water spread out as much as seventy miles. In the fertile lands on the two sides of Old River, plantations were deeply submerged, and livestock survived in
In 3200 B.C in Egypt, there was a lower and upper Egypt. The Lower being at the north end of Egypt and the Upper being at the south end of Egypt. River travel was a common thing to do Upper and Lower Egypt were both built on the Nile river. Eventually the two Kingdoms were combined as one Kingdom under the rule of King
Mesopotamia is one of the earliest civilizations in the world; hence it is called the cradle of civilization. Located between the rivers Tigris and Euphrates, Mesopotamia is the perfect word for this region since Mesopotamia also means the land between rivers. These two rivers created the Fertile Crescent which was surrounded by barren territories. People in this area gave up hunting and gathering and instead slowly shifted into agricultural means of getting food to help them survive. They started domesticating animals and planted their own crops.
From: Mr.Jazayeripour the manager of Mojave Desert community to: The California Environmental Protection Agency Water is one of the necessary sources for organisms to survive in many ways. and did you know that (The United States uses about 346,000 million gallons of fresh water every day. allaboutwater.org-water.facts ) Mojave river, colorado river and underground water are the main sources of water for animals, plants, residential, industrial and agricultural uses. ground-water depletion is primarily causes by sustained groundwater pumping.
