Can you look at my answer and tell email if you agree ?
Choose one of the two early riverine civilizations discussed in our textbook (Mesopotamia or Egypt) and explain the ways in which it qualifies to be a civilization. Do you believe that the traditional requirements for a society to be labeled as a civilization should be changed? Are the existence of writing or of metallurgy necessary for a society to be considered civilized? Why or why not?
This is my answer
A civilization can be described as a society with a system of government, a religious system, and a system of writing. Mesopotamia is a great example of a civilization fitting this description. While each city was not ruled together, each had a king. Cities had a temple to worship the gods and goddesses. The Mesopotamians had a language that consisted of symbols, also known as pictograms. The Mesopotamians were an advanced society that has characteristics that would consider it a civilization. The requirements for a society to be considered a civilization should not change. Every civilization needs a form of government and a system of writing. The existence of writing is necessary for a society to be considered a civilization because it another form of communication, a way to document events that have happened, for stories to be saved and repeated, and for religious beliefs and scriptures to be written

Civilization refers to human cultures that are complex in terms of technology, science, and division of labor. They are often measured by their progress in agriculture, long-distance trade, occupational specialization, a governing class, and urbanism. Aside from these core elements, a civilization is often marked by any combination of a number of secondary elements,
including a developed transportation system, writing, standardized measurement, currency, contractual and tort-based legal systems, characteristic art and architecture,
mathematics, enhanced scientific understanding, metallurgy, political structures, and organized religion.
