Hammurabi's Code


One of the ancient Babylonian kings was named Hammurabi.  Hammurabi was tired of people changing the laws whenever they wanted an advantage.  So Hammurabi did something no one before him had ever done.  He had all the laws written down on clay tablets.  He did this so that everyone could know what the law was and no one, not poor man or noble, would be able to say that that wasn't the law.
