Concerns and cultural beliefs of the civilisation analysis

2.  The Primary Sources are: “The Law Code of Ur-Nammu” (ca. 2100 B.C.E.), Hammurabi’s “Code of Law” [excerpts] (ca. 1750 B.C.E.) and “The Code of the Assura” (ca. 1075 B.C.E.).  All three are from civilisations which existed in Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) in very ancient times.  The texts of each law code have been placed in a file on the Titanium website for this class—see “2020 Fall- First Writing Ass’t, Ancient Law Code Texts”

3.  Thirdly, you must write a paper about all three of these law codes, in which you subject the readings to critical thought and analysis, including your conclusions from that analysis.  You must compare, contrast, and critically analyse EACH of the three readings.  Your analysis should include the following points (in no particular order):

a.  Firstly, what does each reading tell you about the culture, concerns and cultural beliefs of the civilisation which created each law code?

b.  Secondly, given that each civilisation existed hundreds (or more) years apart from each other, what do similarities tell of cultural commonalities; what do differences tell of cultural differences between the three civilisations?

c.  Thirdly, is there any evidence to suggest that each civilisation had similar beliefs of moral behaviours?

d.  Fourthly, what do the types of punishments given in each law code tell of how each civilisation viewed that status of humans and the value of human life?

e.  Discuss the meaning of differences between economic and physical punishments.

Remember, ensure  that the paper is at least three pages exclusive of the cover and the reference pages. Also, ensure that you include all the references you use in finding research for this assignment paper. References should be at least three for the paper. All references, citation, and writing should follow the APA formatting and styling guidelines. Finally, ensure you focus on the assignment topic in detail.
