Please read Chapter 2 in the textbook The First Complex Societies in the Eastern Mediterranean, ca. 4000-550 B.C.E. (pp. 22-43) and answer the following questions:
1. The Hittites were considered to have military superiority at the time, and they were a major challenge to other powerful kings and kingdoms. Discuss the military advantages the Hittites had, at this time.
2. What were the three different social groups recognized in the Code of Hammurabi and how did this affect their punishments under the law?
3. As societies became more complex, it became necessary to devise a means of communication and record-keeping. Describe the various stages that occurred in the invention of writing in Sumer.
4. Describe the geography of Ancient Egypt and how it provided natural barriers to the kingdom in the ancient period.
Ohh -- I'm so sorry, but I don't have a copy of your textbook.
It looks like you're going to have to read this chapter and answer the questions yourself.
