Ancient Babylon Study

Ancient Babylon StudyAncient Babylon was a fun study for us.  We pretty much followed the study as listed below.  I did add a DVD on Nebuchadnezzar and Daniel to the mix and going through Hammarabi’s laws were quite interesting.  The boys were happy to live in modern times after finding out the penalties for law breaking in ancient Babylon though.
