Who were the Sumerians?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Who were the Sumerians?       
Who were the Sumerians? The Sumerians developed the first known civilization, in 3500BC. They lived in Mesopotamia, a region between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers in what is now modern Iraq.

The Sumerians built large and elaborate cities, developed tax systems and government, and produced irrigation systems to water their crops.

Excavations of one major city, called Ur, showed signs of a great flood, which is thought to have been the Flood described in the Bible. The Sumerian civilization lasted for about 1,000 years.
