Features of Ancient CitiesCharacteristics of ancient cities
First civilisations evolved in rivers ideals ( "lowlands" between hill ocks or mountains), where humans could cultivate the great agriculture necessary to nourish a large populace. When there was plenty of the meal (easier to get), more in town. The increasing number of individuals, the need to sustain a secure diet and the need for defence soon resulted in the government's expansion.
Government organizes and regulates people. The first civilisations were usually governed by royalty - kingdoms or Queens - who organised the army to save their people and created legislation to govern the life of their people. Civilisations. They all evolved religion to declare the powers of the natural environment and its role in the arsenal.
In order to gain their favour, preachers (religious leaders) watched ceremonies (traditions) that should please them. That gave the clergy particular authority and made them very important men. Sovereigns also asserted that their might was founded on God's consent, and some sovereigns asserted to be God. Might also emerged. Sovereigns and an elite of clergy, civil servants and soldiers ruled the city.
Beneath this category was a large group of free men - peasants, (people with particular skills) and craftsmen. There was a slaving group downstairs. Craftsmen and craftsmen were inspired by the top class's desire for luxurious (fancy, expensive) articles, such as jewellery and wares. It has often resulted in the exchange of new technologies, such as metal for tooling and new agricultural technologies, from one area to another, as new civilisations have come into being.
However, on the whole, the early riverbank valleys evolved separately. All of them were founded on development in connection with the Neolithic rural and urban revolutions that this brought with them. The civilisations of Mesopotamia, Egypt, India and China together formed nothing less than a revolution in the development of people.
It was an important characteristic in the lives of these new civilisations. Especially sovereigns, clergymen, businessmen and craftsmen used the letter to keep exact notes. Not all civilisations, of course, needed to write in order to keep notes. Finally, the early civilisations used to write both for their creativity and for storing notes.
Important art work was another characteristic of the new civilisations. Builders constructed churches and shrines as places of adoration or offering or for the funeral of monarchs and other important souls. There were also portraits (drawings) of the sovereigns and deities who worshipped them.
