Mesopotamianís have created a ton of things since the starting of civilization. Some of the creations were the wheel, the twelve month calendar, and the sailboat. If you were to look on the world map today, Mesopotamia would be located in Iraq in the middle east.
One of Mesopotamiaís first great achievements was the wheel. It helped them to get supplies around for other places and allowed them to go places. They started out as logs under a box that people towed around and would keep on bringing the logs that come out at the back and brought it to the front.
Mesopotamia also created the writing system or also known as cuneiform, which they called it when they first created it. If they didnít create the writing system we would still be speaking caveman language today. They first started out using clay tables and used certain symbols for things, because they couldnít speak. It has brought human nature along way and has allowed us to use any word in the world.
Now if Mesopotamia didnít invent this invention we wouldnít know what day it was. It is the one and only, twelve month calendar. It allows us to know what day, month, and year it is. It has helped us out in many ways letting us know what day it is for your sport or what day you left to Calgary.
When Mesopotamia created the sailboat they knew that it would change the world forever. It has allowed people all around the world to travel quietly across oceans and lakes. It was also thanks to the invention of the sailboat for all the other boats created around the world like the speed boat, cruise ship, fishing boats, and ferries. All of these boats let us travel across water instead of swimming.
My conclusion is that we should be very thankful for Mesopotamia because they basically created the whole entire world. They have allowed us to know what time it is, know what day, month and year it is and lots of more things that created the world.
