Bridge-Land of the Five Seas – the Near East as the bridge of Civilisations

We introduce the concept of the Bridgeland – the region stretching from the edges of the Fertile Crescent to the Indus River Valley: which was home to some of the oldest civilisation is human history, and the stage for the most glorious of world empires: including the Ancient Persian Empire, the Empire of Alexander the Great, to the Arabian Caliphates and the Seljuk Turks. We the geographic causation model to the history of Eurasia while looking at the interactions between the Heartland and the peninsular Rimlands, especially through the Bridgeland.

Since the beginning of human civilisations, people, goods and ideas have flowed across this Bridgeland creating enduring cultural links that have stood the test of time – persisting and moulding civilisations till today.
