cultivation slash and burn cultivation rather irrigated cultivation Irrigated cultivation does not significantly increase the carrying capacity of the land but the land is regularly replenished and can be reused over successive generations meaning you do not need to move But with time comes increasing population and demand on resources Population of QatalhdyUk would require 150 square miles of cultivation But the boundaries of QatalhdyUk limited by the regular flooding of the plains meaning higher density Qarsamba River must have provided a means of transporting goods Video Out of Egypt
