Cultural change had no positive value in ancient Egypt
In our modern days we are used to rapid changes in our society, in the technologies we use and in all other aspects of our live. During the 3,000 years of Egyptian history in contrast only little cultural changes occured because the Egyptian society strived for continuity in old values.
All cultures undergo change, and we have long recognized that change in one part of a cultural system results in changes in other parts of that system. We also know that societies often appear to be in equilibrium for long periods unmarked by great change. The longevity of many of the world's prehistoric and historic cultures reflects a continuity in their economic, sociopolitical, and religious systems.
Ancient Epyptian history is rich in examples of cultural continuity but naturally also of cultural change. The 3,000 years of history argues for stability of basic economic, religious, social, and political systems. Yet in order for a culture to continue in the face of expansion, trade, invasion, and technological innovation, changes must occur.
The ancient Egyptians saw no positive value in cultural change, except at the technological level, and they went to great lengths to prevent disruption in their society. Therefore many of the rituals they performed encourage continuity with earlier periods of their history that they visualized as ideal.

The Indus was the starting point for the Indian culture
At about the same time as the Egyptian culture in the Indus River floodplain a new civilization developed: This ancient Indian culture was highly developed and used sophisticated techniques to manufacture goods and items for daily life.
Language and culture
The connection between culture and language has been noted as far back as the classical period and probably long before. The ancient Greeks, for example, distinguished between civilized peoples and bárbaros "those who babble", i.e. those who speak unintelligible languages. The fact that different groups speak different, unintelligible languages is often considered more tangible evidence for cultural differences than other less obvious cultural traits.
Early River Valley Civilizations
Water was the key to the forming of ancient cultures
About 5,000 years ago the first ancient civilizations started to replace the Neolithic communities that existed before them. These new civilizations all began in different river valleys which facilitated their rapid growth.
