Hi I am Caroline! Ancient Sumerians used canals,dams,and reservoirs for their irrigation system. The plow was used for turning and preparing soil, farmers pushed it or oxens pulled it.
Social structure and goverment
Social Structures were organized from top to bottom at the top there is kings,priests,and nobles. At the middle level there is Merchants and Artisans. Lastly the bottom is slaves. Kings ruled over cities and goverments but priests had more power. The Sumerians were the first people to develop a system of written laws.
Sumerians used many ways to express their religious beliefs,for example statues, ziggurats, sometimes even the ritual of killing somebody. All of those ways to express their religious beliefs are also how they pleased their gods
In the arts, metal workers made weapons, cups, and decorative items like mirrors and jewelry. Also they believed the art of music brought joy to the gods. In music they used a wooden harp called the Lrye it was decorated in beautiful stones.
People had to drag their goods on a flat bottomed carts called sledges. This was before they discovered that the wheel could be tilted on its side to create a wheeled cart for farmers or chariots in the army.
Pictographs are symbols that they used, they all represent a real object. The word Cuneiform comes from the latin word "wedge'', this name was the name of their language.
