Technology and Art
The Mesopotamian people invented many important and useful technologies still being used today. The Sumerians invented the wagon wheel and the sundial. The wagon wheel was used for transportation of people and goods from place to place. The sundial was a more accurate tool to estimate the time by using the Sun.
Art was a very important part in Mesopotamian history. The people of Mesopotamia created large human-like statues out of mud bricks and other materials to memorialize their kings and gods. The gods and kings were revered in Mesopotamia as ultra-beings and were treated with great respect. Because of this, life revolved around worship of royalty and the other dimensions.
