Code of Hammurabi

Eye for an Eye

Hammurabi believed a code of law would help to control the empire. He sent out people to collect the existing rules. After studying these rules, Hammurabit put together a single code of law. The code, written in cuneiform, was displayed on huge pillars near a temple. The code's goal was to bring justice, fair treatent of people, to the people. The code gave rights to people living in the land. Punishments were different for each social class.-McDougal Littell World History

Hammurabi's Code was placed at the town center so all citizens would know the laws and punishments.
