Being located in river valleys provided many benefits to early civilizations. The rivers gave them a mode of transportation for both travel and trade, as well as providing water for irrigating crops. It also provided fish, and people could hunt the animals that gathered at the river to drink. Floodwater spread silt over the soil, which made the farmland more fertile.
