Living in Ancient Mesopotamia covers the period from 4000 BCE (Sumer) and 1000 to 500 BCE (Assyria and Babylonia). It examines the day-to-day lives of ancient Mesopotamians, from kings and priests to slaves. The structures of the family and government are explained, as well as the effects on Mesopotamian law of several major rulers. Particular attention is paid to the contribution of Sumerian culture, including the plow, the pottery wheel, copper and bronze smithing, writing, and mathematics.

With timelines, maps, detailed photography, and full-color illustrations, Living in Ancient Mesopotamia is an engaging reference for young adults that brings the ancient world to life.

Chapters include:

  • The Sumerians
  • Creating Order
  • The Age of Super-States
  • New Babylonia.
