The Sumerians were very inventive people.  It is believed that they invented the sailboat and the chariot.  For certain they developed cuneiform, the first written language.  They developed a system of math that we still use in part today.  They based their math on the number 60.  Today, there are 360 degrees in a circle.  They also invented the game of checkers.
