Where there were first ancient civilizations, as they were called, had achieved what was in their basis – all of these issues are already many hundreds of years before historians and scientists. Also in dispute is the fact that what civilization considered first.
Still, it is not known what kind of civilization can be called the very first, as not all the facts of our history is well known. Scientists argue about which of the ancient civilizations can be attributed to the first.
In currently known facts, scientists have compiled a list of civilizations of the planet that formed among the first. Next, we consider some of them.
The civilization of the aborigines of Australia
Some scientists believe the ancient civilization of the aborigines, which had evolved in isolation on the Australian continent. This way of life could not fail to influence their traditions, customs and culture. It is known that the aboriginal tribes consisted of one hundred – one hundred fifty people, all connected by a very complex system of kinship. In each tribe all were equal. For many years, the civilization of the aborigines was considered primitive. In fact, their culture is quite rich, but completely incomprehensible to us, because poorly understood. This unique culture is now in decline due to the invasion in Australia of the British. Their cultural heritage, most likely, will not be able to return.
Civilization we call Atlantis was mentioned by Plato as existed some nine thousand years ago near the Strait of Gibraltar. Presumably, Atlantis sank because of the devastating earthquake. Scientists and historians continue to debate about whether Atlantis was the first and most ancient civilization, and she was there.
Takes place the hypothesis on the existence of a civilization called Lemuria. Scientists suggest that it emerged around eighty thousand years ago in the huge continent of Lemuria. Having existed for approximately fifty thousand years, this ancient civilization was destroyed by the earthquake. It is believed that the people of Lemuria have mastered the construction of large stone buildings that can withstand earthquakes. Construction technology – the most significant achievement of the Lemurians.

Sunset Hyperborea started after the change of the axis of rotation of our planet. Due to ensuing changes of climate, Slavic civilization was forced to move to more fertile land. Care of the Slavs in the new lands was the impetus to the spread of Slavic culture. Due to the redistribution of the population, made possible the laying of several new civilizations.

The mystery of the origin of life was guarded by special priests – Keepers of a Sort. Ancient Slavs were pagans, who idolized forces of nature. Their main gods – Perun, Veles, jarilo God’s mouth. General ideas about the gods among the Slavs did not exist because they were never unified in their beliefs.

At a high level were weaving, blacksmithing, weapons, jewelry and pottery. Existed among the Slavs and pre-Christian literature, where some of the letters were Greek, some similar to Germanic runes.

The Sumerian civilization is referred to the urban type, as it consisted of several independent city-States. The most important of them is Lugash, Ur, Eridu, Uruk, Umma, Akkad, Nippur and Sippar. All these cities were located in the area of Mesopotamia.
