This means that we will look in depth at the conditions and societal practices of Babylonian slavery and Babylonian women, how they lived and what sort of restrictions kept them in their place.
The oldest myth and history from the dawn of human civilization in Mesopotamia. Running chronologically, more or less, from 3000 BCE to the bronze age collapse of 1200BCE.
