The role of a historian from Mesopotamia

1.) One of the civilizations which made Mesopotamia was Akkadian- Akkadian ( 1900 B.C. ) was a spoken language but very similar to Arabic and Hebrew language. It was written using cuneiformThe second civilization was Hummurabi - Hummurabi ( 1800 B.C. ) was a well known king during his reign he was a king of Babylon ( 1792 - 1750 B.C. ) he had conquered most of Mesopotamia during his reign. The third civilization would be Hittites - Hittites were people who spoke Hittite and also controlled central turkey and some times even north Syria ( 1650 - 1200 B.C. ) 2.) one of the requirements for a civilization would be cities a culture must have CITIES that can hold and support more than 5000 people. Another requirement would be a written language. This would be used to communicate with other for trade, knowledge, and even jokes. 3.)Hammurabi's laws kept Mesopotamia organized and kept lower ranks at the bottom and higher rank at the top. It also keeps food divided evenly and gives people the right amount of money that they deserve for working. But without these LAWS they would be unorganized and people would steal and most likely not get in trouble...So pretty much it would be a mess.4.) one of his laws were if a man is borne false witness in trail he is sentenced to death. Another one of his laws was of a man has stolen goods he shall be sentenced to death. And another one was if a man has committed incest with his daughter he shall be banished form the city. The fourth law that I found was if a man has harmed a plebeian he shall pay half of the value. And last but not least if an owners son has died he ( the builder shall be sentenced to DEATH. Gilgamesh was practically a god so he pushed every one around and made them bow before him. Later someone by the name of Enkidu comes into his city, so gilgameshmis jealous because they also treat him as a god. So they met each other and started to fight. Soon they embrace for some un apparent reason. Then they challenge Hummaba to a fight and they beat him.
