Some facts about (ancient) Mesopotamia: Mesopotamia is the name of an ancient region which means the land between two rivers. Mesopotamia made up most of what is today Iraq, and is considered to be the first civilization. It was in Mesopotamia that people first began to live in large cities and created governments. Mesopotamia is often referred to as the ‘Cradle of Life'. Mesopotamia included a region of approximately 300 miles long by 150 miles wide. The Mesopotamian culture also developed the first written language, religion, and agriculture. Mesopotamia was located between the Tigris River and the Euphrates River.
Interesting Mesopotamia Facts:
•The land on the sides of the rivers was fertile while the general area was not and this led to irrigation techniques.
•Mesopotamia's major cities included Baghdad, Babylon and Nippur.
•Baghdad is located in the middle of Iraq by the Tigris River; Babylon was located along the Euphrates River; Nippur was located approximately 100 miles south of Babylon.
•Babylon was the capital of Mesopotamia.
•Mesopotamians developed glass, the Pythagorean Theorem, and ancient sanitation techniques.
•Mesopotamians invented the wheel in approximately 3500 BC, changing transportation forever.
•Although most of the region that encompassed Mesopotamia is now desert, it often experienced flooding in ancient Mesopotamian times.
•Mesopotamians farmed crops of vegetables, fruits, sesame, wheat, barley and raised pigs, sheep and cattle.
•The Mesopotamians invented the seeder plow which made it possible for farmers to plow and seed at the same time, saving time and energy.
•The first cities in the world appeared in Mesopotamia in approximately 4000 to 3500 BC.
•It is believed that the first city ever created was Eridu, an ancient site in Mesopotamia.
•The ancient Mesopotamians had hundreds of Gods that they worshipped.
•Mesopotamians had relationships with their own personal gods who they believed would talk to other gods on their behalf.
•Every city in Mesopotamia had its own god.
•Mesopotamians had different gods for different professions.

Most Britons and Irish descended from male farmers who left Iraq and Syria 10,000 years ago (and were seduced by the local hunter-gatherer women)

Most Britons and Irish are direct descendants of farmers who left modern day Iraq and Syria 10,000 years ago, a study has shown.
After studying the DNA of more than 2,000 men, researchers say they have compelling evidence that four out of five white Europeans can trace their roots to the Near East.
The discovery is shedding light on one of the most important periods of human history - the time when our ancient ancestors abandoned hunting and began to domesticate animals.
The invention of farming led to the first towns and paved the way for the dawn of civilisation.
The Leicester University study looked at a common genetic mutation on the Y chromosome, the DNA that is passed down from fathers to sons. They found that 80 per cent of European men shared the same Y chromosone mutation and after analysing how the mutation was distributed across Europe, were able to retrace how Europe was colonised around 8,000BC. Prof Mark Jobling, who led the study: 'This was at the time of the Neolithic revolution when they developed a new style of tools, symmetrical, beautiful tools.
'At this stage about 10,000 years ago there was evidence of the first settlements, people stopped being nomadic hunter-gatherers and started building communities. 'This also allowed people to specialise in certain areas of trade and make better tools because there was a surplus of food.' European farming began around 9,000 BC in the Fertile Crescent - a region extending from the eastern Mediterranean coast to the Persian Gulf and which includes modern day Iraq, Syria, Israel/Palestine and southeast Turkey.
The region was the cradle of civilisation and home to the Babylonia, Sumer and Assyrian empires. The development of farming allowed people to settle down for the first time - and to produce more food than they needed, leading to trade and the freedom to develop new skills such as metal working, building and writing.

It has been a childhood’s dream to see Ishtar Gate. This Gate is more than 2600 years old, every blue brick was numbered so it was possible to be reconstructed again. It was located outside city of Babylon beside 7 other gates, decorated with Mesopotamian lions, dragons, flowers and inscription of king Nebuchadnezzar II. #babylon #iraq #mesopotamia #germany #berlin #pergamummuseum
