Debts, Crime and Prison: Daily Life in Babylonia CA. 1200 BC
Oriental Institute, Chicago IL
Oriental Institute
Presented by Susanne Paulus, Assistant Professor of Assyriology, Oriental Institute, University of Chicago. When history is concerned, it is often restricted to the dealings of outstanding individuals or entities: gods, kings, and heroes. The struggles of normal people are usually neglected. Using the rich document corpus of clay tablets found in the excavations of the Babylonian cities of Ur and Nippur, this talk allows a glimpse into the daily life of the middle and lower class around 1200 BC. Special focus on problems still well-known today include family trouble and indebtedness.
