Most of the Public Services provided in Rome were supported by aqueducts. For example, the public baths, water fountains, and sewer system all came from aqueducts. Creating a system of paved roads made it quicker and easier for the Roman army to move around the Roman Empire. The roads were also used for postal service so that messages could be sent to other parts of Rome because it was expanding a great deal. The roads were not just used by the postal service and the army, the people and merchants had access to the roads as well for travel and trade.
The Famine Stele text responds to the question of finding out ‘where the inundation is born, and what God resides at the source of the flood season that will join with the Pharaoh’ (as quoted on paragraph 3 line 1 and 2 of the famine stele). This topic is significant to the Egyptians as they rely on the Nile to bring wealth to their people in the form of crops and fertile land which they need to survive. They also relied on the inundation to bring in the New Year as it was the first season of the New Year. The inundation would be significant to Herodotus as
The River Valley Civilizations of ancient China, Egypt and Mesopotamia were crucial contributions to future civilizations. They invented new ways of writing, laws to help keep civilization and society just and controlled and developed trade routes to help spread cultural diffusion. In documents 1 & 4, they talk about the two different types of writing, cuneiform and hieroglyphics. Cuneiform was the world’s first written language, created over 5,000 years ago by Sumerians.
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.
They also include the replacement of undersized structures such as bridges. These works are necessary, as the original channels have become undersized as a result of the increase in flood flows caused by development. Flash flood also can be overcome with storage ponds of flood attenuation. Ponds such as disused mining pools can be used for flood storage. The objective is to divert the flood water through such ponds and thus regulate the outflow so that the flood peaks are attenuated.
New England emerged as the leading manufacturing center as a result of the abundant waterpower the region held for driving new machinery and seaports for shipping goods. The decline of maritime and industry made capital available for manufacturing and the decrease of farming in the region brought ready labor supply. As the factory system expanded, it encouraged the growth of financial businesses such as banking and insurance. Transportation including roads and canals such as Pennsylvania 's Lancaster Turnpike and the Erie Canal stimulated economic growth. Another factor that impacted the region was Eli Whitney 's brilliant mechanical invention of interchangeable parts that became the basis for mass production methods in the new rising factories that were sprouting and
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.
Osiris had many positive characteristics and attributes, which helped him rule and later gave stability to his cult that followed. He was involved with the burial process and the rule of the underworld, which many Egyptian people believed in. Osiris was also connected with the cycles found in agriculture, which was important to the survival of the
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.
13. What role did the River Valley play in the rise of cities? The River Valley was full of fertile land because of the water leaving rich nutrients in the soil when it flooded so it allowed agriculture to flourish there. Also, in the Nile River Valley the river flooded at the same time every year, so they could predict when they needed to clear everything out and be done harvesting, so it minimized the damage the floods created.
Both ancient Shang and the Mesopotamia civilization depend on Bronze. In Shang, the Bronze is made to tools for agriculture , Bronze tools make the planting process more efficient, thus the civilization own more foods and goods for domestic trading. Same thing happened in Mesopotamia, people use bronze to make tools and produce more goods. Since the Mesopotamia people is better at international trading through ocean, bronze has a deeper significance for them, bronze helps the people to trade further into the ocean, it is believed that Mesopotamia people have traveled and traded to Britain and Afghanistan for resource with the help of the Bronze. Another major development in this period is the writing system, both of the two civilization own pretty completed writing system, but two writing system are believed to be invented for different purpose, Shang people develop the oracle for mainly political and the religious purpose, people and the king need record religious and political issues.
The building of roads, canals and railroads played a large role in the United States during the 1800s. They served the purpose of connecting towns and settlements so that goods could be transported quickly and more efficiently. These goods could be transported fast, cheap and in safe way through the Erie Canal that was built to connect the Great Lakes to New York. Railroads were important during Civil War as well, because it helped in the transportation of goods, supplies and weapons when necessary. These new forms of transportation shaped the United States into the place that it is today.
The farmers of Ancient Egypt came up with a system to water their fields, called irrigation. This system was consisted of dams, ditches and canals to move the water to their fields (Document 3). Irrigation is still used in present day. Everyone knows about the pyramids, and that the Ancient Egypts built them, but not everyone knows how they
Mesopotamia was the first complex civilization to be developed. Civilizations have been well known by their means of subsistence, types of living, settlement forms, forms of government, economic systems, literacy, social stratification, and other cultural behaviors. E: Geography influenced the rise of civilization because it has to be able to maintain many people. Many civilizations started different bodies of water, because if they want to live, they have to consume water.
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.
