Civilization is the ways of life started by people who live in cities.Our culture today is influenced by ancient civilizations.The three major early civilizations that have influenced today's cultures are the Egyptians, Babylonians, and Sumerians.

The Babylonians started the most complete legal system like what is used today.The Babylonians came up with a national god, which unified cultures all over.This belief is used by many religions and is the main belief used today.The Babylonians came up with thefirst type of irrigation system on the Tigris/ Euphrates Rivers.
