Many people assume the first civilization is Egypt, but there is also much debate which says otherwise. Some 4000 BC, the people of Mesopotamia developed primative forms of writing and numbers.

If taken that the definition of Civilization is 'an advanced state of human society, in which a high level of culture, science, industry, and government has been reached' (rev http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/civilization) then the Sumerian culture came first.

Although, the Egyptian culture was not far behind, and lastest longer. In fact, as Egypt is still considered a civilized country, Egypt could be argued as being the oldest civilization.

However, there is much debate in this topic, so my belief is that we will never truely know. Also, the answer will change depending on what your definition is of Civilization is. Before we can truely begin to answer this question, we must first agree on tht fact.

Here is a thougt to pose to you all, has there ever actually been a 'civilized' country?
