  • There was Food shortages in Zagros and Taurus that forced settlers in Mesopotamia to move from the foothills down to the river valley.
  • We had a problem the rivers flooded and killed there crops
  • So Sumerian farmers began creating irrigation systems for their fields. They built levees along the sides of the river to prevent flooding. Had canals to let water in.
  • As Sumerian cities grew, they fought over the right to use more water. Sometimes, people in cities located upriver built new canals, or blocked other cities' canals.
  • In this way, they kept water from reaching the cities that were downriver Sometimes, people in cities located upriver built new canals, or blocked other cities' canals. As Sumerian cities grew, they fought over the right to use more water.
  • Canals became clogged with slit, so farmers had to clean it regularly. Farmers could no longer live apart, or in small groups. They had to work together for common goods.
  • So in conclusion, We had a rough time but we fixed things like the water we made a irrigation system and fix are water problem. We worked together to fix problems that's why we were the first people to make a city.
