Babylonian School Day

The cuneiform is one of the oldest writings in the world. In this writing, Babylonian scholars have written down their thoughts, experiences, traditions, myths, legends, astronomical teachings and also mathematics. They have thus made them accessible to us.

How did the children learn to write 4000 years ago in Mesopotamian? Following a short presentation and a guided tour through the museum, the children can work out the answer to this question by themselves with the help of clay, a stylus and a character table. At the end everyone will write their name onto the clay tablet in the cuneiform.
