bhcompy: Errr, we spent a significant amount of time in middle school world history on Hammurabi's Code. Perhaps in England it is not focused on?

Well, that's the problem with the Mesopotamians. No one's ever seen them. No one's ever heard of their band.

Sargon, Hammurabbi, Ashurbanipal and Gilgamesh.
