Construction of reed houses at a riverside village in Sumer in what is now Southern Iraq. Sumer was an ancient civilization founded in the Mesopotamia region of the Fertile Crescent situated between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.
Known for their innovations in language, governance, architecture and more, Sumerians are considered the creators of civilization as modern humans understand it. Their control of the region lasted for almost 2,000 years before the Babylonians took charge in 2004 B.C.
