Ancient Neighborhoods (Unit 2 & 4)

Unit II: The Problem of Human Settlement This unit explores those neighborhoods that grow around river systems. Our time frame finds us in the early years along the Nile, Indus, and Tigris & Euphrates Rivers. Unit IV: High Traffic Neighborhoods Here, we get to see what happens as once simple neighborhoods meet with more and more interaction. As trade flourishes and empires expand boundaries, life gets a bit more complicated.
