The Top Ten

1 Advanced Agricultural Techniques

2 Laws

Every society has its own set of laws. However, there's some common laws found in most societies, such as "don't murder" or "don't steal". Laws establish order and prevent total anarchy. - ethanmeinster

7 Written Language

Modern day historians often point out that a civilization has to have a written language to be considered civilized. However, the Incas had no written language, but they are considered very civilized. Nontheless, a written language helps people of a civilization communicate with each other. - ethanmeinster

8 Trade

Trade benefits everyone, as people would get the necessary materials that they don't have. Many civilizations, such as China, have become rich from high demand of products, such as silk. - ethanmeinster


9 Religion

Most civilizations in history have used religion as a form of political control, including all of Western Europe in the Middle Ages. Nowadays, however, humans have developed secular governments, dividing religion from politics. Most countries around the world have secular governments, but some still have official religions. - ethanmeinster
