Uruk

The world's first ginormous city.

Geographical Location

Uruk was built on the grounds of what is now known as Iraq. Greeks called this place Mesopotamia also known as the land between the rivers since it was between two rivers. The name of the two rivers were the following: Euphrates and Tigris.

Everyday Life

As time passed by individuals learned to farm they eventually stopped wearing attire made from animal skin. They traded the animal skin clothing for fashionable clothing made from animals and plants as well. As ironic as this might sound in Mesopotamia even during hot weather they'd wear clothing made from sheep wool.
