  • Hello welcome to mesopotamia it is located in Iraq and the two main rivers here are the Tigris river and the Euphrades river.
  • we moved to sumer because our population was growing too fast and resualted in food shortages
  • The land is dryer and hard to find good space to plant crops but at least we have more space
  • we moved down here but there was some problems with the water, the rivers floded in the spring because the snow at the top of the mountains and floded the rivers
  • But we came up with solutions to prevent this, we built levees on the sides of the rivers and dug canals to control the water
  • The canals had to be cleand of silt wtich was a very fine type of rock, since the people worked so well together they started working together as cities
  • As cities grew and more people interacted people fought over things like food, land, or shelter but the thing they fought over most was the right to use more water
  • sometimes the people up-river would build new canals or blocked other cities canals
  • The water over flowed in the spring and washed out the new ssedlings and there was not enough water in the summer for the plants wich caused people to coperate and build canals wich created some small city-states
  • In conclusion, since there were food shotages in Zargros they had to move down the foothills near the rivers where there were problems with the water
