Our world has been left in astonishment and awe wondering how these civilizations were developed. Egypt and Mesopotamia were the first ancient river civilizations to create cities and their own ways of living. Political, economic, and religion played an enormous role in the development of the ancient cities. Although there is evidence of early Sumerian contact with the Egyptians, Egypt's civilization was largely self-generated and its history and cultural patterns differed from Mesopotamia.

The Indus Valley and Mesopotamian river civilizations are some of the oldest civilizations in the history of the world. Though Mesopotamia emerged a little earlier than the Indus Valley, the civilizations have very similar ways of doing things.

However, both of these civilizations are distinct enough to be classified as their own society, even though they have similarities in their technological, economical and architectural construction. The Indus Valley and Mesopotamia would not have existed if it wasn’t for their populations inventions and help of technology.
Dear Committee, Julius Caesar is usually credited for bringing down the Roman Republic, but it was Augustus who proclaimed the republic to be brought down. And although he did rule as an absolute ruler, and may even be considered a tyrant in his final years, he set precedents for other rulers in Rome, as well as expanding the empire to its height in some places, and even used some republican ideals throughout most of his reign.
