The people during that time had daily life’s that are very similar to our daily lives today surprisingly. They as well had an appetite for meats of all sorts including fish. They also had a type of door to their houses that worked like a door today with a key and lock.

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.

This article about Mesopotamia is very interging it talks about the Gods of Mesopotamia, there life style, and there culture. It also talks about what the word mesopotamia means in Greek which it means land between the rivers. It talks about how the ancient mesopotamians belived in the after life and also belived in demons.   There were alot of Gods but there were 5 major ones they were the Sun,Moon,wind,salt water,freshwater. Each city was protected by a God and each city had a Ziggurat which is a temple were the city preist would pray,chant, and make offerings to the Gods. Each year the peoples when they harvest there crops they pay crops as tax then the priest would offer the harvest to the Gods.
