“Land between rivers” and one of the greatest cradles of civilization. In this fertile territory, located between the Euphrates and Tigris Rivers, humanity left nomadism and gathering behind to build the first cities: Ur, Lagash or Uruk.
They started agriculture, farming and an outstanding development marked by a series of great milestones in the evolution of humanity: the wheel, writing, laws, literature, science, religion and politics.
From the year 4,500 b. C. the Sumerians, Akkadians and Babylonians laid the base of our current life style.
In Mesopotamia humanity abandoned nomadism and built the first cities in history. This helped to the appearance of agriculture, cattle raising, and social and political organization that was derived from life in the city. Men and women had the opportunity to specialize in specific professions.
