The Babylonians are known for the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, but did you also know that the Babylonians studied the stars to predict the future? They also used reeds as drinking straws, and the city of Babylon was one of the world's first cities. Find out more about what life was like in ancient Babylon, which is located in modern-day Iraq. In this book, you'll learn about people's daily activities, religion, buildings, inventions, and leaders. Photographs and vivid comic-style illustrations help bring this culture to life!
