Recall that we noticed the development of four cradles of civilization. Around 5,000 BC Mesopotamia emerged as a civilization. This was followed about 3000 BC by the civilization in the Nile River delta of Egypt. I have already discussed the civilization of Egypt in Part 8. The Indus River valley civilization blossomed about 2500 BC and lasted a short time. Not much is yet known about this civilization. To some extent it seems to have developed out of an agriculture advantage much as did Mesopotamia and Egypt. There was also a civilization in China along the Yellow River valley, but it is not clear when this began.

Quick google result, don't know how accurate

Found them I think. Mesopotamia along the Tigris-Euphrates, China along the Yellow River, Egypt along the Nile, and India along the Indus.

What's New Jersey?

I always thought that was just New York's land fill.

the new world...
well, the meso-american mayans & the aztecs..
but there were olmecs earlier...

and in SA, in the andes, the inka...
(the mayans faded before the conquistidors came, but the aztecs & the inca were pretty well decimated within a few decades... in north america, the mound builders were - something - but that's mostly plowed under... the american colinists got some of their ideas for confedration from in dian nations... but something like 90% of the native american population died within a couple centuries of the arrival of the euros (post cristoforo columbus, NOT post lief erikson & the vinland settlers, apparently...)

There's also Central America. I once took a course on the rise of civilization, and these were the areas we studied.
