Today we developed a definition of civilization. We analyzed traits Civilizations need, discussed how we could qualify them, and eventually came to a list of 5-key aspects of Civilization. I've posted the list below.
Specialization of labor enabled by an agricultural surplus
Eg. Soldiers, teachers, doctors, priests, builders, farmers, etc.
Uniform system of measurement that allows societies to record traditions, customs, beliefs, economics, etc.
Developed technology that allows a society to function more effectively as a whole, or is more advanced than other societies
Cities that are developed in both size and organization.
Eg. Uruk, Ur, Lagash in Sumer
Advanced systems that allow society to functions
Eg. Form of government, religious organizations, education, etc.
