In between the fertile banks of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, in what was called the cradle of civilization, the first known civilization on earth evolved. Life in Ancient Mesopotamia describes the lives of ancient Sumerians, Babylonians, and Assyrians, and explores the gifts they brought to the world, including the wheel, plow, and sailboat. Great lawmakers such as Hammurabi, the architectural beauty of ziggurats and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, along with the invention of cuneiform writing are also featured.
