A School boys’s day. Sumer (2000 BC)

[The Sumerian’s of Mesopotamia (now Iraq), built the first cities, the first state. They invented writing and the formal education of children.]
Arriving at school in the morning I recited my tablet, ate my lunch, prepared my new tablet, wrote it, finished it, then they assigned me my oral work…
When school was dismissed, I went home, entered the house, and found my father sitting there. I told my father of my written work, then recited my tablet to him, and my father was delighted.
