-upper-Northern part, Syria, turkey, northern Iraq-get hills and mountain ranges -lower-Southern part, more flat lands and plains, hot, black and dry. -the environment puts limits on things what people can do. -lower-put more irrigation in this area -a part of the world that is extremely active politically in the modern sense. -Iraq-not a good place to do archeology there because its so politically instable. So they got creative with the information they did have. Started to look at the edges of Mesopotamian culture zone and lot more people working in turkey and Syria. -one of the things that U.S. Department of Defense said that archeology is really important so they informed and trained US soldiers about archeological heritage. They made plane cards that informed them about what artifacts looked like for future generations. Also to stop looting. -look at satellite imagery-a first one in 1950s but got declassified because they were so old. these older pictures are better because they show places before it got bigger and modern people came in. -modern geo-political modifications challenge us to look into Mesopotamia but this has made us more creative to look for more ways to see it.

    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.
