The difficult geography of Mesopotamia greatly influenced many technological advances in their culture The name Mesopotamia directly comes from its Greek meaning the land in between the rivers Because of this location Mesopotamia experienced very harsh weather conditions such as unpredictable flooding and drought cycles However the Mesopotamians coped with the difficult geography very well by creating inventions to make it easier on them to complete tasks One example of how they coped with the difficult geography is by creating the wheel Before the wheel was invented trading for supplies with another place was very difficult In some cases the Mesopotamians were left with very few supplies to use when the weather was harsh When the wheel was invented transporting supplies was a lot easier because instead of carrying the supplies these far distances they could wheel them Another invention that helped the Mesopotamians cope to the geography is by creating the sail Previous to the sail it was extremely tough to travel around Mesopotamia Many people had travel by foot from one side to another which is very strenuous and could take days When the sail was created instead of walking for days to trade and get supplies the Mesopotamians could now sail on either the Tigiris or Euphradies River to get to where they needed to go Both of these inventions along with many others helped shape the development of trade in the Mesopotamian culture based on the difficult geography that these people had to cope with
