Favourite ancient river valley civilisation




Which one is your favourite? Mine is Indus for religious and cultural reasons however Nile/Egypt is very interesting for the Saharan migration and also being on the continent where all humans came from.

You have a thousand and one days to vote.

Re: Favourite ancient river valley civilisation

i was always facinated by Egypt history, but also in the indian culture
real tough decision
but i go with Egypt

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: Favourite ancient river valley civilisation

I love playing the Babylonian empire in Civ games, so I'll vote the Tigris/Euphrates rivers. And also, The Hanging Gardens is my favourite wonder.

Same here.

I can't get over my obsession with them

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

It's not really from this time period though so it's not really fair.

SPQR's contemporaries were more like Mauryan India and Qin China. Egypt and Mesopotamia (in its original forms) have long declined by then.
