Andreina Ruiz's curator insight, January 28, 2014 11:36 PM

I actually thought that Egypt was the location of the earliest civilization. Egypt is known as the land of the hebrews' slavery and Menelaus' exile after the long Trojan War. Egypt is a country that contains so much history and architecture to be told.

It is believed that Egypt was not the first location of civilization. The Sumerians were said to be the first people/location of civilization.
