Mesopotamia as a Civilization
By: Allison D.
In 3500 B.C. the City-States of Mesopotamia rose.
Each city believed in a god for every interest that they had.
They believed kings were chosen to carry out the gods wishes.
The people of the city believed in many gods.
Division of Labor
Another important job was a trader.
A step down from the king society was divided into seven groups: wealthy business people, landowners, and Government workers; artisans and farm workers; and slaves.
These kinds of systems also showed up in later civilizations.
Cuneiform was used for centuries to come.
In 3200 B.C. they invented writing in Sumer.
The artisans were not good with huge stone because they did not have stone with which to work with.
Pottery was traded for food, clothing, and Jewelry.
Canals were one of the most important public works they were used to bring water to the fields. City walls were to block other army's from attacking.
