  • Cell one: Stable Food Supply
  • Holy cow! We can finally live and see how ancient summers lived back then. There are so many networks such as canals, dams and reservoirs. Also there is a plow which is in my distance but is extremely helpful for turning soil. 
  • Cell two: Social Structure and Goverment
  • Back then there was multiple classes that represented different levels of social structure. Right now I am standing in front of one of the social structure buildings from many years ago. Some of the different people in different levels were kings who were the highest. Also merchants and artisans were in the middle level.
  • Cell Three: Religion
  • Now we are moving on to the religion building where the Sumerians tried in anyway to please there gods. They constructed multiple temples and religious towers for performing ceremonies. The towers were called Ziggurats because of how ancient they were and how old.
  • Cell four: The Arts
  • Over here is the Arts where metalworkers made objects such as weapons and cups. Besides all the pottery they made they also used this part of Sumer for music.The Sumarians thought music brought joy and happiness to them and loved playing there unique instruments. One of there most memorable instruments was the Lyree which was a wooden string instrument that represented there love for music.
  • Cell five: Technology
  • Moving on to technology, where back then in 3500bc it was used for pottery which you can see. But now it is used for the production of the wheel which you can see in a distance. Ancient Sumers discovered the wheel by running it back and fourth, They constructed it by clamping many small pieces together. Before that they would use a sledge which was a flat bottomed cart that people would drag their goods on.
  • Cell six: Writing
  • Finally we arrive at Writing, where the ancient Sumerians wrote pictographs representing symbols and shapes. And Cuneiforms which represents there own language using wedged shaped characters. They created this language for a more advanced civilization.
