Storyboard Text

  • There were many fights for irrigation water and farmland in the city-states around Mesopotamia
  • Mesopotamian cities were very over populated and as a result their water was contaminated which got lots of people sick. Many people left because of theses issues.
  • The irrigation techniques were what made farming possible in Mesopotamia, but later was what destroyed it
  • What's happening to our crops?
  • When the irrigation water would sit on the land it would leave behind a mineral salt that was highly poisonous to the plants
  • Something is eroding the soil!
  • The rivers were higher than the surrounding land so water would flow into the fields. It was difficult for farmers to drain the water
  • Oh No! The crops!
  • After a while, the soil couldn't support the plants. Many people couldn't farm anymore because the irrigation ruined the soil. Therefore, many people left to find a better place to farm. This was one of the causes for why Mesopotamia collapsed.
