Writing is important for civilization because it helps us do things we need everyday. 1. It helps us create business transactions 2. It helps us write treaty's 3.It h…elps us choose what foods to eat 4. It helps us give directions 5. we also have writing to give directions 6. Most important it helps us communicate with others with out writing there would be no solid form of communication. . The above leaves out the most important effect of writing: the ability to transmit information to people we haven't ever met. This impact is felt in two ways: (a) The ability to accurately record history. That is, to know for sure exactly what someone said or did. This is critically important for passing down knowledge between generations, as it allows for the accumulation of more knowledge than could possibly be kept via oral histories. The impact of this is that writing allows for a sophisticated society with a much larger accumulated knowledge base than otherwise possible. In essence, what we see as technology is really predicated on a foundation of writing. No writing, no technological advancement (except at a glacially slow pace). (b) It allows for transmission of ideas across vast distances quickly and, most importantly, accurately . Writing allows for the accurate description of an idea, and one which does not depend on all carriers of that written idea to understand even a little of that idea. This transmission of ideas in a quick manner is the foundation of a complex society. No functioning society larger than what is called a Chiefdom (several thousand people, at most) is possible without writing of some form. Most importantly, writing is required for specialization of a society - in order to have farmers, merchants, political bureaucrats, soldiers, etc, one must have writing. Otherwise, everyone is a hunter-gatherer or farmer.

Writing was/is important in ancient civilizations on two fronts. First of all, it was important to the ancients because that was how they kept their records, and their histori…es. It is important to us, because it gives us insights into their societies, laws, and sometimes into their likes and dislikes. In other words, we get to know them through their writings.
