Today, we are living in a modern age. An era where technology has massively changed our lifestyle. Today, you can do literally anything and everything with the help of advanced technologies. But in old days, none of these existed. People would have to rely on raw stuff to keep their day-to-day life. For instance, means of communication were not there. People would have to walk for miles to convey a message. Today, unlike those days, a piece of information circulates all across the world in no time. Thanks to the advancement in technology, modern-day life is much more easier and seamless. Deep down, these modern-day advancements were set by the early civilizations of humanoids.
So, what we see today in modern life could not have been the same if there were no ancient civilizations. Perhaps the life that we live on earth today could not have been possible without these ancient civilizations.
Here are 4 ancient civilizations (dating back to 4 to 5000 years) that have paved the way for today’s modern world.
Mesopotamia: Ancient Greek Civilization (4000 to 3500 BC)
The number one oldest civilization that set the building blocks of today’s modern civilization is Mesopotamia. This modest human civilization (located in modern-day Iraq) is assumed to be the birthplace of civilization. However, the term literally means “between two rivers,” and the civilization today is located between Syria, Iraq, and Kuwait in modern-day.
Thus, historians argue that Mesopotamia was a civilization that lived in these regions between 4000 to 3500 BC. Since this early civilization gave birth to other human civilizations on earth, it is known as the birthplace of all civilizations.
Ancient Egyptian Civilization (3100 BC)
The next old civilization that set the building blocks of today’s modern world is the ancient Egyptian civilization. Living on the planet during 3100 BC, the Egyptian civilization is one of the most powerful ancient empires in the world. Popularly known for its pyramids and mummifications, the Egyptian civilization has paved the way for modern-day life.
However, it is essential to note here that there are numberless unique features of the Egyptian civilization. Perhaps the most fascinating and most discovered one is its pyramids and unique architecture. This civilization has paved the way for a modern era of architecture.
Ancient Indian Civilization (3300 BC)
Another oldest civilization we are going to look at is the Ancient Civilization of the Subcontinent of India. Dating back to 3300 BC, Ancient Indian Civilization is one of the oldest human civilizations that have paved the way for modern-day advancement in India.
Dating back to some 3300 BC, ancient Indian Civilization is one of the oldest civilizations that have paved the way for modern-day advanced India.
Ancient Chinese Civilization (2000 BC)
The ancient Chinese culture was rich in almost everything. Today, what we see in modern China is nothing more or less than an outcome of the ancient Chinese civilization that dates back to at least 2000 BC.
