The Rise of Early Civilizations     By the early fourth millennium B.C., the population of the Tigris - Euphrates increased; and city-states arose.  By 2000 BC the cities of Sumer had grown so large that some like Ur, the capital city, had populations more than 200,000 persons.

Hammurabi, the Priest King     Hammurabi (ca. 1792 - 1750 BC) united all of Mesopotamia under his forty-three year reign of Babylon.  Although Hammurabi's Code is not the first code of laws (the first records date four centuries earlier), it is the best preserved legal document reflecting the social structure of Babylon during Hammurabi's rule.

About the Code     Two hundred eighty-two laws, concerning a wide variety of abuses, justify Hammurabi's claim of having acted "like a real father to his people . . . [who] has established prosperity . . . and (gave) good government to the land."

See for Yourself      The laws were discovered in 1901 on a stela now in the Louvre Museum of Paris, France. 

What Other Have to Say      Every now and then, I hear from people who enjoy the site. And fortunately, most of the word is good.

MURALS by PHILLIP MARTIN    They weren't my own brilliant idea. The murals kind of took on a life of their own because of the free clip art. It started with an email from Namibia, but now you never know where I might show up with brush in hand.
