Why is it the first society in which detailed historical study is possible?

 

How was Ancient Mesopotamia characteristic of civilization in general? Why is it the first society in which detailed historical study is possible? You should make references from the Uruk Period down to the Old Babylonian Period under Hammurabi (4300-1750 BC).

Finally, discuss the significance of the Assyrian Empire or Persian Empire. Read the excerpts from the “Analyzing Primary Sources”: The Code of Hammurabi. What does this law code tell us about the complexities of ancient Mesopotamian society. Read the excerpt “Diplomacy of Mycenaeans and the Hittites”: What does this letter reveal about Late Bronze Age (ca. 1200 BCE) diplomacy?

As you can clearly see this paper has several parts. You should respond to the question posed. The above questions should be answered as part of one paper for this unit; simply answer the question in sequence. Use documented evidence to support and substantiated. Evidence–primary or secondary–is found in your textbook and all the resources of this Moodle course.
