Aaronee's curator insight, February 4, 2014 5:45 PM

40,000 years the first people from Africa reached India. They started farming by 2500 BC and settled in the Indus river valley. People think they started to farm becuase the gradual warming trend made it very hard for them to get water and it was hard to find wild plants. 

Charlie Wittke's curator insight, February 6, 2014 4:21 PM

This children's history site claims that this society was one of the more advanced at its time. They farmed, they irrigated, and they made cities when it got overpopulated.

Three of the world's major religions -- the monotheist traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam -- were all born in the Middle East and are all inextricably linked to one another. Christianity was born from within the Jewish tradition, and Islam developed from both Christianity and Judaism.
