In the Americas maize·manioc-, and present-day Peru. Long before the arrival of Columbus in the Americas in A.D.1492,these and other crops had spread through large portions of the Western Hemisphere, form the temperate woodlands of the North Atlantic coast to the rain forests of the Amazon region. Thus,varying patterns of agricultural production were sufficient rainfall land suitable temperatures. From the comparison made above, it seems that Egypt and Sudan did not begin too differently from each other,Culturally,there seem to be significant similarities, especially between the riverine Neolithic populations during the fifth millennium BC (Edwards 2007:217).
4) although in 15th century Nanjing, China, there was also a large population, with approximately 500,000 citizens. Tenochtitlan is not only well known for their population but for their agriculture and market places (Doc. 8, Doc. 11). In the ancient Indus River Valley civilization, they had been properly and efficiently irrigating their crops since about 4500 BC. Likewise, a few millennia later, the Greeks also masterfully advanced their civilization; they had impressively organized marketplaces called agoras. These marketplaces were the center of trading goods and
The most artistic and cultural achievement came about during the Classic period 300-900 AD. The Maya built massive stone pyramids, temples and sculptures. Early Mayans were farmers and helped the community in keeping up the fields. They first used sticks
The most sophisticated early plant cultivators lived here, where maize agriculture was highly developed by 2500 B.C.E. As Mesoamerican farmers refined their practices, their crops improved. Higher yields and improved nutrition let societies to center their lives around farming. Over the next eight centuries, maize based farming societies spread throughout Mesoamerica. Maize cultivation began in Mesoamerica in about 5000 B.C.E.
Social and religious upheavals during this time period were considerable," (Doc F). Many of the reforms that came after were broadly supported by religion. Although religion had a big impact on America, it also gave them a cutting-edge and cheaper transportation
In doing so, the Aztecs created the chinampas to reduce the amount of physical labor needed to maintain their crops. This technological advance created more room to govern and grow the Aztec Empire. The growing Aztec Empire shaped the world and ended up transforming how people

Mesopotamians traded their extra grains for stone, wood, metal products, and other goods. They produced this extra grain by irrigation. They built canals, ditches, and barriers to bring water
Question 1. A. For large populations: When the settlers came to the new world they encountered many large civilizations abundant with people. Hernando de Soto witnessed 50 settlements when he explored the strip of the Mississippi. Soto described the region as having clusters of small cities, earthen walls and several thousand Indian warriors. (Pg. 45)
They established a rich culture of farming the floodplains of the rivers and streams in the watershed of Lake Lanier, which historically yielded abundant harvests. In the early 1800s, settlers flocked to homesteads in the rolling hills, pushing the Cherokee Indians farther and farther westward. The Gold Rush of 1828, with the discovery of gold near Dahlonega, Georgia, in part, helped to largely hastened the flow of settlers into the Lake Lanier region. The ultimate removal of the Cherokees from Georgia by the federal government came in 1838, and their subsequent relocation to a reservation in Oklahoma cemented the way for settlers to take their

Four thousand years ago, Hammurabi was the King of Babylon, a city state and later on in 1792 BCE ruled much of Mesopotamia too. There was a population of 1,000,000 people, so Hammurabi had to create a set of laws to keep order and peace. “Hammurabi’s Code” was a total of 282 laws written on a stele, which is a big stone pillar. Since, Mesopotamia was so fertile and society was based on agriculture, a lot of the laws made were about farming. In addition, the social classes of Babylon were broken up as landowners, free people who did not own land, and slaves.
