    Cool information!
    Hey Bjorn, I really liked your article - one thing I noticed was that laws in Mesopotamia are quite different from ours today. Most of the crimes were punished by death, while today we don't even have this kind of punishment. Also I find it interesting that Mesopotamian laws have a close connection with the cylinder seal which I explained in my article.

    The cylinder seal had a great importance for the people of the time, because it stood for one’s personal identity and reputation. That's why Uruk could also be credited as the city which first recognized the importance of the individual in the collective community. The city was continuously inhabited from its founding until c. 300 CE when, people began to desert the area. It lay abandoned and buried until excavated in 1853 CE by William Loftus for the British Museum.

    It seems that Uruk started as two separate settlements, Kullaba and Eanna, which merged during the Uruk Period (4100-2900 BCE). The new city of Uruk was covering 80 hectares, its walls were 9.5 km long and it may have housed some 50,000 people. In the heart of the city were two large temple complexes, the Anu sanctuary and sanctuary dedicated to Ianna, the goddess of love.
    The city was most influential between 4100-c.3000 BCE when Uruk was the largest urban center and the hub of trade and administration. Today we recognize the importance of this ancient city, primarily because it was indeed the FIRST CITY IN THE WORLD!
