Mesopotamia بلاد الرافدين‎ "land of rivers", is a name for the area of the Tigris–Euphrates river system, corresponding to modern-day Iraq, Kuwait, the northeastern section of Syria and to a much lesser extent southeastern Turkey and smaller parts of southwestern Iran.

Widely considered to be "the cradle of civilization" in the West, Bronze Age Mesopotamia included Sumer and the Akkadian, Babylonian, and Assyrian empires, all native to the territory of modern-day Iraq. The name Mesopotamia, Greek for “land between the rivers,” was given the region by Alexander the Great.
