Civilizations must have a culture, a written language, a religious structure, a political structure, and a economic structure. The importance of Hammurabi's laws are for the safety of the civilization. The most interesting laws to me are if you don't pay with money you must pay with crops, if somebody satisfies elders to impose fine grain or money, he will receive the action he produces, if anyone takes the minor son of mother, they will die, if anyone steps anything, they will die, and if anyone holds their slaves in their house, they will die. Gilgamesh was a powerful king who ruled a city named Uruk. Everyday he was bored. So one day he went across the flat plains to the distant mountains. He thought he could bring back some wood from the Cedar forest. When he was in the forest and put his axe on a tree, he heard a demon. Then all of the powerful winds captured the demon and he said if they let him go he will let them get as much would as they con hold. Although they did not believe him so they cut his head off and took plenty of wood. When the were done they had a big celebration.

Agriculturist

Working hard all day!!!!

Now I will describe our farming and agriculture because it is very important to my everyday job. Well first I built canals, and planted lots of veggies and other crops. I also built the canals to help irrigation. The crops I planted were wheat, dates, barley and the veggies were apples onions, cucumbers, and I also planted many spices. I liked to eat duck, egg, and cheese. Farmers year is when you get a limited supply of water and you still have to grow crops. An example is if your father left for the year maybe you would have to take care of the 7 fields for the year.
