Post 4- Attention: Sumerians!
The new hot spot that everyone is talking about is the Indus River Valley!! Because of the abundant water supply, agriculture is prosperous. The river valley is also surrounded by mountains which makes for better protection if an attack of war were to break out. The mountains also prevent diseases from entering the valley and creating a problem amongst the people in the civilization. Provided is transportation by early forms of boats and carts as well as the availability of fresh crops such as wheat, barley, rye, cotton, and domesticated animals. Our irrigation system exceeds all expectations of other civilizations as well as our own expectations. Housing though is simple and ideal, but sometimes even luxurious. All houses have access to the water and are completely accomodating to all families. If this isn't convincing enough to get you to come to the Indus River Valley then I dont know what is! So come and prosper!
