Akkadia was led by Kind Sargon for over 50 years. He is the first kind in history! King Sargon united some of the Sumerian cities discussed in the previous lesson but later on they fell under the ownership of Babylonia.
Babylonians were led by a man named, Hammurabi. They were the ones that conquered the southern Sumerian cities and created an empire. They built roads creating easier travel routes and better trading. Hammurabi is famous for creating 282 laws, which was the first-time laws were written.
That’s it, folks. If you enjoyed today’s chalk talk then come back tomorrow for more 🙂
