System of Writing
The Mesopotamian's were advanced considering that they discovered to do many things. They all were things that changed the future for us. When the Mesopotamian's invented all of these things it helped us advance technology of what we have now. One of the Mesopotamian's most greatest invention was the system of writing. One of the first most important written things were Hammurabi's Code. Everyone learned their from teachers who taught the kids how to speak of what they wrote.
When the Mesopotamian's first around they didn't know right from wrong. Hammurabi's first set of laws indicated, and solved this problem. He had 282 laws that weren't always the fairest, but it kept most people under control. For Example one of his laws were "If a man put out the eye of another man, his eye shall be put out." Another one of his laws were "If he put out the eye of another mans slave, he shall pay one-half of its value." A different law says "If a Physican heal the broken bone or diseased soft part of a man, patient shall pay five shekels in money."
A great way to show that the Mesopotamian's were advanced is that they had Job Specialization. They had Scribes, Healers, Artisans, Weavers, Potters, Shoemakers, Teachers, and Priests. Everyone was always doing something kids went to school, and adults somewhat all a duty. Men worked and so did women.
