Society in Ancient Mesopotamia
Ancient Mesopotamia was an incredibly advanced civilization for its time. There were many aspects of society that were well structured and highly developed, as seen from the artefacts. The tablets themselves were remarkable, as the written language - Cuneiform - was the first of its kind. In addition, there were structures and hierarchies made in areas such as medicine and education. Tablets detailed illnesses, causes, and treatments for study, and included clear distinctions between those learning and those who were experienced, as only the experienced healers could treat human adults. Schooling existed as well, with written Cuneiform being taught in schools through proverbs. Marriage of state was also an aspect of Mesopotamian society that contributed to its prosperity, dating back to 1350 BCE. Overall, its success in creating a well structured civilisation is evident through the artefacts and the stories they tell about the past.
