Paleolithic actually means “Old Stone” which explains their tools of use. Uncover the first human towns- pg.7 Answer: Jericho and Catalhoyuk were the world’s first communities. Geography of Mesopotamia- Pg. 8 Mesopotamia was a dry, arid land. The soil was sandy, and summer temperatures sometimes exceeded 110 degrees Fahrenheit. Culture of Ancient Sumer- pg. 9-11 The people of Sumer used pictograms for writing. They called the writing cuneiform. Their religion led them to believe their cities were better than the others.

Sumerian technology- pg. 11-12 Bronze tools, irrigation systems, wheels, chariots, and maps were huge parts of Sumerian technology.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
