The responses should be at least 2 full pages in length (typed, double-spaced, Times New Roman 11 pt. font) and answer each of the assigned questions completely and include at least one external scholarly reference that is not the textbook. On identifying “scholarly” references, see the section in this syllabus entitled “using sources.”

The questions you need to respond to (fully and equally):

—What does the Code of Hammurabi tell us about Babylonian society?
—What distinct social groups are mentioned in the Code? What kind of social hierarchy can you discern?
—Why write something like this?
