I can't find any information on the first civilizations of Mesopotamia. I have an idea, but I am not quite sure. Can you help me?
There are top down notes we took in class on the first Empires. Look under the Mesopotamia page. The Sumerians are the first "civilized" people but we're not united as an empire, therefore they were independent city-states. The Akkadians under King Sargon were the first to conquer and unify the Sumerian city states under the banner of what we call an Empire. Hope this helps.
Mr. St. Pierre, I was studying for the test and was looking at the top down web but I'm kind of confused. You listed Sumerians as civilized but they are not an empire? Does it count as a civilization? Also, if possible, could you please list the first four civilizations of Mesopotamia in order? I have an outline of which is which and I know most facts but I'm not sure if I have the order correct. Thank you.
