Daily Mesopotamian Life

A Day in the life of a future Scribe

School is a place where young male minds are developed into the mind of a successful scribe. Schools are attached to temples and taught by noble priests. These priests are very strict, they expect absolute perfection. If the students do not reach their expectations, they are severely punished.


A day in the life~


  1. A young male begins his day at school by writing on his clay tablet.
  2. He will then be judged on his neatness and precision and writing.
  3. The boy then eats his lunch and continues to work.
