    Ano ang kinalaman ng heograpiya sa paglago ng sibilisasyon sa Asya?

    Kailangan ko ulit ng tulong ninyo.

    Bakit po kaya sa Asya nagsimula ang mga pinaka-unang sibilisasyon? May kinalaman po ba ang heograpiya ng Asya dito?

    Maraming salamat po sa mga sasagot sa aking katanungan

    Napakalaki ng Asya. Sabihin mo kung saan sa Asya nagsimula ang sibilisasyon.

    Ayon po sa aming aklat, tatlo po ang pinaka-unang sibilisasyon sa Asya. Pinakamatanda po ang sa Mesopotamia (West Asia), sinundan ng India (South Asia) at China (East Asia). Bakit po kaya sa Asya nagsimula ang mga pinaka-unang sibilisasyong ito?

    Tuwing may assignment si Isko dito siya nagtatanong. That is smarter than going through his class reading list. Anyway, baka last week pa ang deadline kaya magbigay na ako ng aking input.

    The reason why civilization first flourished in Asia is WATER, lots of it. Paleontologists say that humanity arose from north-eastern Africa, perhaps in present-day Ethiopia. While Africa was still lush grassland and forests thousands of years ago, it was starting to dry out, thus Man slowly migrated to Asia along the Fertile Crescent called the Middle East. Man settled in valleys where there are lots of water as water is the true fountain of life. He first settled in Mesopotamia, that lush valley between the Tigris and Euphrates River. Some groups moved on and reached India, a huge sub-continent interspersed by the Ganges and the Indus Rivers and many other relatively minor rivers. Man's inquisitive and adventurous nature drove some of them further north, to East Asia where he and his group settled in China, another vast set of valleys well supplied by giant rivers -- the Yangtze and the Yellow Rivers. In fact, there are 10 major rivers in China.

    Rivers played a significant role throughout the history of human settlement. All major and minor civilizations beyond Asia settled on river banks -- London is on the Thames, Paris on the Seine, Rome is on the Tiber, New York on the Hudson, and Manila is on the banks of the Pasig River.

    Let me get back on the Fertile Crescent (see map below). Think of ancient Man in Northern Africa wanting to get out of a drying continent (actually he followed migratory animals getting out of a drying continent). Where would he go? To the South is the endless Sahara Desert, together with the Nubian and the Syrian and Arabian deserts. The only viable direction is through the North -- to Asia. So, again, water played a role in that decision -- the absence of water to the South and the abundance of water to the North. This brings us to yet again the reason why the Middle East was the battleground of the "world" since time immemorial. Look at the map below. That slim strip of land called Palestine is the only viable passage in ancient time to travel on foot from Africa to Asia. It was thus very strategic, thus the major wars in ancient time were for the control of what was then the Fertile Crescent -- from Egypt - to Palestine - to Mesopotamia.



    Water supported the start of human civilization. The increasing lack of drinkable water and the fight for it will likely end it as well.

    Lol assignment din una kong nasa isip.

    I sotto Ateo's explanation. I.E. it's all about the Rivers. Aside from the Mesopotamian ones, there are the Ganges and Indus river valleys in India, the Yangtze/Yellow River valleys in China. Those gave rise to early Asian civilizations.

    Also, not really the earliest, but there are also the civilizations that rose around the Mekong River in Southeast Asia and the Han River in Korea.

    Rivers mean flood plains, flood plains mean good agriculture, so the tribes can stop wandering and settle down.

    @Kuroi, even in the Philippines, our major tribes are named after rivers. The Tagalogs are just taga-ilog and the Kapampangan, of course, settled on the banks (pampang) of their river. One of my ancestors was said to be a Subanon (Cebuano word for People of the River).

    I agree. The first settlements were built around rivers. Its needed for irrigation.

    Kapag deep study about early known civilization, then it will only point to one location, the now known middle east where man started the ancient civilization.

    If water is concern, the world have water in abundance in the ancient days, Civilization can start in America of far east asia towards middle east. But that is not the case based on archeological findings. Man civilization all begun where the Garden of Eden started in the bible by the great river of Euphrates, and where the Ark rested in Mt Ararat. Latest archeological findings was a civilization 50 miles away from Mt Ararat...that was embedded under the sand.

    Walang lahing unggoy na naging tao sa lugar na yan kungdi puro tao ang lumitaw base sa history.

    Prior to civilization, early human beings were mere food gatherers - hunters. The increase of their tribes (population) forced them to be food producers and engaged them in agriculture (circa 8000 BC to 7000 BC known as Neolithic or New Stone Age).

    Earliest recorded human settlement that sparked civilization occurred probably in the hills of what is now southern Turkey and northern Iraq, especially in the Zagros Hills east of the Tigris River.

    In addition to agriculture, navigation is another reason for the settlement. The River system as the best road to transport people and the goods they produced.

    At isa pa, maganda kasi ang klima sa Asya. Hindi masyadong mainit, hindi masyadong malamig tulad sa kontinente ng America, Europa at Gitnang Silangan na sukdulan ang lamig o init. Mayaman sa pagkaing halaman at hayop. At mga ilog ay mahalaga hindi lamang sa agrikultura kundi sa larangan din ng transportasyon. Sa pamamagitan nito ay nakakapaglakbay ang mga sinaunang tao at kumakalat ang mga ito. Malaking tulong din ang mga ilog sa pagparo't parito ng mga produkto na inilalako.
