Ask Mr. Donn
Many thousands of years ago, early settlers began to build cities along the banks of the Euphrates and Tigris Rivers, the region known as Mesopotamia. Natural wildlife and vegetation kept these early people fed while they began to build their new world. They were a very clever people. They soon learned that if you irrigated the land, crops grew quickly. They invented the wheel, the sailboat, and the first written language!
