Topic: The Oldest Civilization



Which is the oldest civilization?



ClassBrain Response:

This has long been a subject of much debate and to this day, no one is absolutely sure which is the oldest civilization. This is mostly because people cannot agree on the definition of the word "civilization". The most common definition of civilization is “an advanced state of development in human society, marked by progress in the arts and sciences, the extensive use of writing, and complex political and social institutions.” Essentially, Mesopotamia is the most decided upon answer to your question, based on archeological evidence and the above definition. Here are a few links to more information:
