Chapter 2 – Hammurabi & Hammurabi’s Code

In 500-750 words (approx. 2-3 pages), choose one event, person, phenomenon, etc. from Chapters 1-3 of the textbook and expand on their/its significance both then and now. Why are they deserving of further attention in this course?
The final submission should have a cover page with title, your name, your course and section, and the date of submission. The document must be in Microsoft Word format. You are required to use at least three academically reputable sources. Ananonymous sources are not academically reputable. I would recommend that you obtain your sources through the college library’s holdings. Note that many books and journals can be viewed online through the library. You will also be expected to utilize the Chicago Style of Citation to document how you used each source. Examples of this citation style for notes and bibliography entries can be found at the Purdue Online Writing Lab here. Related to this, you will be required to use footnotes (as opposed to endnotes or parenthetical citations). Finally, you should end with a bibliography page listing your sources in the proper format.
Page numbers should be located in the top right header of each page with both your last name and the page number (e.g. Seutter 1). The margins should be no larger than 1 inch in size, the font must be Times New Roman, 12-point, and the body of the paper should be double-spaced.
