Which of the civilization regions that we studied was known for having sophisticated layouts for its cities as well as indoor plumbing?
Harappa and the city of Mohenjo-Daro were the greatest achievements of the Indus valley civilization. These cities are well known for their impressive, organized and regular layout. They have well laid our plumbing and drainage system, including indoor toilets.

Which of the following distinguished the cities of the Indus Valley?
The Indus cities are noted for their urban planning, a technical and political process concerned with the use of land and design of the urban environment. They are also noted for their baked brick houses, elaborate drainage systems, water supply systems, and clusters of large, nonresidential buildings.
Which ancient civilization was known for its strong centralized government very effective and planned cities and great plumbing and sewage systems within their cities?
Early engineers also created sophisticated plumb- ing and sewage systems. These systems could rival any urban drainage systems built before the 19th century. The uniformity in the cities’ planning and construction suggests that the Indus peoples had developed a strong central government. of this city planning.
What river in Egypt was the center of civilization?
The Nile River was critical to the development of ancient Egypt. In addition to Egypt, the Nile runs through or along the border of 10 other African countries, namely, Burundi, Tanzania, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Uganda, Sudan, Ethiopia, and South Sudan.
What are the 4 river valley civilizations?
The most notable examples are the Ancient Egyptians, who were based on the Nile, the Mesopotamians in the Fertile Crescent on the Tigris/Euphrates rivers, the Ancient Chinese on the Yellow River, and the Ancient India on the Indus.
Why Indus Valley civilization flourished near Indus River?
(2012), the slow southward migration of the monsoons across Asia initially allowed the Indus Valley villages to develop by taming the floods of the Indus and its tributaries. Flood-supported farming led to large agricultural surpluses, which in turn supported the development of cities.
Which was an early Indus Valley planned city?
The city, Harappa, and another ancient city, Mohenjo-daro (shown here), are known as “the twin capitals” of the Indus Valley civilization. Both cities were planned, unlike cities in other ancient civilizations, which had grown from villages to towns to cities.
How were Mesopotamian cultures and Nile Valley cultures similar?
Egypt developed around the Nile River, while Mesopotamia developed between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. Egypt and Mesopotamia grew into complex civilizations. Socially, both civilizations were patriarchal, but Egypt was more lenient towards women while Mesopotamia was stricter.
What distinguished the early cities of the Indus River Valley?
The Indus Valley Civilization contained more than 1,000 cities and settlements. These cities contained well-organized wastewater drainage systems, trash collection systems, and possibly even public granaries and baths. Although there were large walls and citadels, there is no evidence of monuments, palaces, or temples.
What were the two rivers of the Indus River Valley Civilization?
These include the Ganges (GAN•JEEZ) and the Indus. Like other rivers you have studied, these two rivers carry water for irrigation. The silt they deposit makes the land fertile. The Indus River valley was the home of the first Indian civilization.
What were the early civilizations in the river valley?
civilizations, early river Early river valley civilizations arose in Mesopotamia, EGYPT, the INDUS RIVER Valley, and CHINA. Earlier agricultural societies (8,000 to 13,000 years ago) were largely subsistence cultures. The river civilizations had food enough to provide for classes of people other than just farmers.
What was the first civilization to develop in Mesopotamia?
The first beginnings of a higherlevel urban-rural society began in Mesopotamia about 4000 B.C.E. The other civilizations appeared shortly thereafter. Mesopotamia, “The Land Between Two Rivers,” lay in the valley of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.
Why did river civilizations have food?
The river civilizations had food enough to provide for classes of people other than just farmers. These societies all used agricultural surpluses to establish civilizations with cities and trade and to create greater sophistication in the arts, sciences, government, and even a leisure class.
How did the Mesopotamian cities produce primary products?
The land lacked a dependable supply of rain, and the supply from the rivers was variable through the seasons. With careful irrigation, the water from the rivers allowed the fertile land of Mesopotamia to produce crops larger than the farmers needed to subsist. Cities do not produce primary products—they refine basic materials.
