Living in Ancient Mesopotamia focuses primarily on two ""ideal"" periods set in about 3500 B.C (Sumer) and 1000 to 500 B.C. (Assyria and Babylonia). This book examines all the aspects of daily life across all strata of society, from the kings and priests to the slaves; from food to religious beliefs. Coverage includes the building of Southern Mesopotamia, the invention of writing, and the development of mathematics. Daily life in Babylon features a soldier's life, a farming society, and family structure. This reference is a useful tool for students wanting to learn more about life in ancient Mesopotamia. Chapters include: The Sumerians; Creating Order; and The Age of Super-States.
