Geographer

Mesopotamia is located in southwest Asia. The rivers that Mesopotamia is the tigres and uephrates rive. If you are to look at a map now, you would see Mesopotamia as Iran. Mesopotamia means the land between the rivers. Mesopotamia is very rainy. It is about 7,000 miles from N.C.

Historian

The requirements for a civilization is that you have to have: urban revolution, new political and military structures, social structure based on economic power, the development of complex technology, development of writing, distinct religious structure, and new forms of artistic and cultural activity. It did not matter how rich or how poor you were. If you got in trouble, no matter what, you would get punished. My five favorite Hammurabi laws are : 1. If one man punches another mans tooth out, the second guy is allowed to do to same. 2. If someone hits another that is a higher rank than him/her, he has to get whipped 60 times with a whip in public. 3.if a builder is to build a house and it caves down on its owner and kills him, the builder is put to death. 4.if a man rents a sailor his boat, and the sailor wrecks it, the sailor has to give the owner a new boat. 5.if an animal is killed by god or a lion the stables man must prove his innocence to god. Gilgamesh was the first king superhero! He was a very powerful king. He was a great king who knew what he was doing. The civilazations were the: Hittites, Babylons, Assyrians, Phoenicians, and the kassites.

Agriculturalist

The farming in Mesopotamia was SPECTACULAR!! Mesopotamia was a place with the BEST farm land because it was so fertile. Since the two rivers on its sides it kept the soil fertile.

The poisoned fields COMPLETLY ruined the farmland. At first they started running out of surplus food and then the disaster of harly any food struck.because of this, people drank up to a gallon of beer a day and ate fish and vegetable stew.civilizations would most likely settle close to a body of water such as Mesopotamia because you would get fertile soil and would have a good source of water.
