Mesopotamia

Ancient Mesopotamia is often called "the cradle of civilization." The world's first civilizations, the Sumerians, The Akkadians, The Babylonians, The Hittites, The Kassites, the Assyrians, The Chaldeans, The Phoenicians and The Hebrews, were all located in the modern day area of the Middle East. In class, we will be exploring the geography, the culture, the achievements and the important leaders of each civilization.
