The Babylonians: Most Influential Civilization In History

Why they are influential

The Babylonians are influential in history because they were the one to build one of the first skyscrapers in the world and were advanced in building Technics. Another reason is that most likely because of the Babylonians we have most of the languages we do today because when God became mad at the people of Babylon for trying to reach heaven and revolt against him, he punished them by making everyone speak different languages so that no one could understand another.
