Lucero Trejo Guerrero's curator insight, November 1, 2013 7:01 PM

The University of Chicago has posted a website that helps students discover about the life in Mesoptamia. The website talks about what the  Mesoptamiams created for us, which is why today,  we have agriculture, language, cities, religion, and government.

Yangchen Lhamo's curator insight, January 23, 2014 5:01 AM

It's funny how knowing there are still mudbrick houses in poor cities of India, where in here, the Jormo House Models were dated way thousands years ago.  

Sheena Dhillon's curator insight, January 24, 2014 4:51 AM

Ancient Mesopotamia is thought to be the beginning of civilization. This is thought to be the case due to the fact that they are the ones who created and developed many items in which we use today and are still present in our lives such as language and even government. This website gives a brief synopsis of it.

It is surprising how this city got covered up and almost distroyed because of earthquakes. What amazes me is that this city was very important for trade back in the day. History gives us more knowledge of the things that happened in the past and we can compare them to the cities we have now a days.

The first words out of Abraham's mouth that are recorded in the Bible are spoken to his wife, when he says, "See now, I know that you are a beautiful woman, and when the Egyptians see you, they will say, 'This is his wife' and ...
Andrea Arminguay's insight:

I think what this article is trying to explain is that, just as Abraham's wife, and Abraham himself, we have to see god not as something geographical but we have to see that God is everywhere. Like when we go to school, or work, or even to sleep, our names and lastnames are the same, God is always with us no matter where we go. Something similar with the Mesopotamia people who were very attached to their gods.

Andrea Arminguay's insight:

this finding is an amazing proof of how the mesopotamia people had a great will for communication. Human kind, in fact, has always had the will for communication. It is impressing how they were able to transmit messages through this.
