Transcript of Mesopotamia Sports, Games, and Music

Ancient Mesopotamia had sports, games, and music as part of there lifestyle. One instrument is a guitar like shape. The other is a instrument like a Harp. One game that I found is a board game make of wood. This game is the modern day backgammon. Fighting was a sport that is from the ancient Mesopotamia. It is very similar to modern boxing or U.F.C. Also hunting using bows and arrows on chariots was a form of sport. I learned a lot of things but what really stuck out is that many modern things started in the time of Mesopotamia.

used in modern
Mesopotamia. John Denniston
