As Roman laborers were often slaves the technologies and tools they used were often neglected and not noticed while the upper class advancements in math and science were the only technological achievements that were noticed. The Hans had a society heavily based on agriculture. New tools and technologies created were often to increase agricultural work and output which were immediately used by the poor which were the main agricultural workers. The lower class separation in Han China led to a more positive view on technology than that of the Romans.

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. They began building houses for themselves which were primarily composed of reeds or mud bricks. Granaries, built by the people in Mesopotamia, were the place where they stored extra grains from their

The most important crop that became the main source of dos was Champ rice. Along with the droughts occurring, the Champa rice was drought- resistant and grew at extremely fast rates.
