Understanding 'Dawn of civilisation' periodToday, we consider ourselves a modern, developed, and civilised society prospering with the scientific and technological progresses. But there was a time when civilisation in the globe was at its nascent stage and slowly emerged developing ahead in a gradual fashion and that period is known as the dawn of civilisation in the history.
The primitive men lived in caves and open spaces facing the wild animals and the wrath of the natural disasters. The scholars had found earlier that the civilisation started to progress from the Mesopotamia area (present day Iraq and surrounding area). Mesopotamia was the land area between the two rivers Euphrates and Tigris. In modern Iraq it is known as Al-Jazirah. In addition to this some recent research are indicating that there were some tribes and locales in central Asia and Indian peninsula which were also developing towards civilisation and this fact is supported from the archaeological excavation of the items pertaining to some places found in other remote and far off places. The Mesopotamian culture influenced much the nearby tribes and societies and its influence was seen to Middle East and as far as the Indus valley, Egypt, and the Mediterranean area.
Based on the scientific determination of the age, the time of these events when civilisation started to develop is about 5000 to 5500 years ago. It took about 2500 to 3000 years for the primitive human societies to come up to a level of civilisation which is known as ancient civilisation. So, historically, the period known as dawn of civilisation is approximately from 3500 BC to 500 BC.
