If you go back to your history text books, you'll see that many never vanished but they just changed rulers and leadership forms (ancient England through modern times). Some were conquered by other civilizations (Mayans by Spaniards). Egypt had a series of bad and weak rulers and became a Roman province (superior Roman technology beat them.)
Like the egyptions, they had these LIGHT BULBS! im serious. They were chemical lanterns that could burn for days. (im not sure, so correct me if im wrong.)
They didn't have lightbulbs. The only "chemical lanterns" they had were oil lamps, just like you can buy (or make) today. Every civilization that I can think of had them.
Why did the Mayans and the Egyptians, and the other civilizations disappeared.. It makes you wonder.
I dont even have much of a theorie, besides maybe the fact that they migrated somewhere...
I think that if you'll just take the trouble to go to the library and look them up in the encyclopedias or to your school textbooks -- or if that's too inconvenient, go to Wikipedia : en.wikipedia.org... then you'll have the basic information about your question.
