Picturing King Hammurabi coming before the god Shamash
Did you know?
Hammurabi was the sixth king of Babylon and ruled from 1792 BC to 1750 BC. But what is most fascinating was his laws - Hammurabi's Law Codes. It was the first written codes of law in recorded history.
I wrote a few exams about these law codes and they are fascinating!!
Hope you enjoyed my Way Back Wednesday!
