While there were important differences, these civilizations had a lot in common which begs some important questions about why these spots? VOCABULARY Civilization – The process by which a society or place reaches an advanced stage of social development and organization. LESSON 1.2.1 | ACTIVITY PURPOSE This activity provides you with an opportunity to start thinking about the impact that farming can have on the way humans live and relate to each other. It will also allow you to think about the kinds of questions archaeologists and historians might ask when they must rely upon artifacts rather than written evidence to learn about the past. Describe the burial: What does the tomb or grave look like? How was the body prepared? Were there any objects in the grave or tomb? What conclusions would you draw about the wealth, power, and social status of each of the individuals from these three burials? Explain your reasoning. EGYPT I can see that there are a few pots made out of clay and the body looks like it was tampered with or moved around. The remains look like they were either moved or tampered with because they look like they were moved to where the leg and the arm are touching one another. The pots say that they believed in life after death. GREECE This looks like a man with a gold face because all I see is the gold face. This guy was extremely wealthy because he had a face made out of gold. XIAN These are the terra cotta soldiers they were put in there to protect the King that was buried in there. I would say that this king was very important because they had tons of these clay soldiers to protect him in the afterlife. This also suggests that they believed in life after death .

Once humans started banding together and had a surplus of food production, they tended to settle along rivers. Rivers gave humans access to nutrient rich soils in which to plant crops, provided food surpluses, and opened travel and trade with other established communities. What’s special about the Indus Valley Civilization is the structures its inhabitants built: buildings designed to catch the wind
