This is a map of Mesopotamia. The green colored part in the map is called  the "Fertile Crescent".  The "Fertile Crescent" has/had fertile soil to grow with. Sumerians and Babylonians mostly lived there with their biggest city named "Uruk". Now in modern time, Mesopotamia is now Lower Egypt, Iran, Isreal and etc.
