Ancient Near East's Full Profile
Was writing invented to record poetry or great literature? Nope. Writing was invented to help keep track of beer and other goods and services! The ancient Sumerians were nothing if not practical. Ancient cultures established the first cities and large scale architecture. From the Gates of the City of Ancient Babylon, to the ancient code of laws instituted by King Hammurabi, the Ancient Near East is strangely distant but also remarkably familiar.
