I enjoyed watching this video because it gave a short detailed video of how Mesopotamia came to be. It mentioned how the Sumerians were the first to establish a written language. In addition it showed how people living there used irrigation to water their crops. It also showed how they built temples for religious reasons.

Women during the period of the Mesopotamian’s had a lot freedom. They were allowed to roam around market places and sell and trade goods. A woman could as well start her own business. Many of the gods worshipped were women. They also held higher positions in the social ladder and religious status too.

I must admit that women always begin with less or no freedom compare to men. However, the status changes over time. I have realized that women are seen as sensitive and weak and men as aggressive and strong.

The role that women played in ancient civilizations such as in Mesopotamia was significant. From property owner to Priestess, women were essential to family, religion, and society in Ancient Mesopotamia.

It is hard to believe that there are humans that have many many years traveling in search of a home where they can have access to food and safety. These people are known as nomads. It is a family group of about 10 adults and children that travel that stays at one area to another for few weeks or months. It is interesting to know that the Mesopotamia is a land rich of nutrients.
