    Part II: The discovery and translation of cuneiform tablets (Sumer, Mesopotamia, Assyria), hieroglyphic inscriptions (Egpyt), and other media have advanced in the past decades to the point that we can study social, political, military, and "religious" activities that were common to various socio-economic levels in ancient societies. We will look at their activities and compare and contrast them to daily life in our times. We will use various translations of ancient texts and inscriptions.
