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.

Sheena Dhillon's curator insight, January 23, 2014 11:51 PM

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. 

Andrea Arminguay's curator insight, January 24, 2014 11:50 PM

this articles and sections were interesting as they explain more in detail the history of the mesopotamia culture such as the role of women, literature, etc.

Yangchen Lhamo's insight:

"If there were no sons at all, the Pharaoh would marry his daughter to a cousin or nephew who would become Pharaoh." This is kind of  scary how daughter has to marry one of her cousins or newphews if no sons were born.
