While Africa is thought to be the birthplace of the human species, Asia is considered the cradle of civilization. There never has been a single Asian civilization, however, because the continentís vast size caused several different civilizations to arise, each independent of the others. This article examines the interactions and successions of these civilizations. Additional information on the countries or regions mentioned is in the history sections of articles on the individual Asian countries.
