Some of the most recent inventions have been:

A New Addition to Babylon
Recently in Babylon, people have been suddenly dying from some unknown cause. People are franticly running around trying to get home so germs do not spread. Some people think that this phenomenon is caused from being in the hot sun all day and from the working class they think that they are being overworked. All of these possibilities could be true, but we need to find a cure fast. Families are being torn apart because of this. We are calling all pharmacists to a meeting to discuss this immediate problem affecting everybody in Babylon. If you know a cure for this please visit the king at his palace to go over this issue in out town.
Coming soon this spring is a brand new ziggurat. We will build brand new features to make this ziggurat better than it has ever been in Babylon. We will also have some great trees on the outside to attract attention. Hopefully, this ziggurat will be a great hit. Some features in this all-new ziggurat are new restaurants and shops in this all new deluxe ziggurat. When you pay a visit here, you will get to be a part of everything that we have listed before, and the top priests in the city-state to better your religious experience. So, when it comes the time, make sure you go to this all new ziggurat!
Ask Babylon! - Question of the week
- I am a farmer. It is not convenient. I don't know if i am just not a good farmer, but i never can get a surplus of food. Its outrageous! Also, I get NO money at all. But, my family's line is in farming... so I am a farmer.
- I am a scribe. It is very convenient. I love my job, and I have a great life. I get a decent amount of money -just to keep me happy- and I enjoy coming to work every day. My family is good, and I couldn't wish for a better job.
- I am a Preist. My job is convenient, teaching students next to the temple how to write cuneiform, and I get a good amount of money. I do not have children, but I have a wife and we have children on the way. I am happy with my lifestyle.
Thanks for reading! check tomorrow to see next weeks question, and maybe you can take part in ask Babylon!
For our Royals report today we will check in on our royals of Babylon. First we will mention king Nebuchadnezzar. He is our current king. King Nebuchadnezzar is an extraordinary king. Hopefully he will be around to help Babylon conquer all of the other city-states so that the Babylonian empire will live forever. Recently, King Nebuchadnezzar has built the Hanging Gardens for his wife since she was homesick. Clearly Nebuchadnezzar is a great king for the people of Babylon. All of the people know that he will protect and keep Babylon safe. Our king has also provided our city-state tons of water to keep is from dying from heat. Although our king is very kind to the people in Babylon, we have to make sure that we listen to his rules because if we don’t we know that Nebuchadnezzar will give us very harsh punishments.
