Caravans were used for
Weegy: Caravans were made up of people and pack animals traveling in large groups; up to 20,000 people and 300,000 animals has been recorded in a general caravan made up of merchants and pilgrims traveling to Mecca. [ A pilgrim caravan to Mecca would carry a heavier percentage of people (50,000) to animals (40,000). Smaller caravans would join together to make larger caravans and provide safety in numbers. Occasionally heavy wagons would be used, but this slowed progress and "time is money", (the expression was already in use). An enormous variety of goods were shipped across Europe, the mid-east and north Africa (the Maghreb). Faires generally lasted a fortnight (two weeks). Faires were typically one to two weeks walk apart or approximately 250 miles, with caravans traveling 20 to 35 miles a day, much slower with wagons (5 to 10 miles a day). ] User: At first, Egyptains believed an afterlife existed just for the pharaohs.

cuneiform
Weegy: Cuneiform script[1] is one of the earliest known forms of written expression. [ Emerging in Sumer around the 30th century BC, with predecessors reaching into the late 4th millennium (the Uruk IV period), cuneiform writing began as a system of pictographs. In the three millennia the script spanned, the pictorial representations became simplified and more abstract as the number of characters in use also grew gradually smaller, from about 1,000 unique characters in the Early Bronze Age to about 400 unique characters in Late Bronze Age (Hittite cuneiform). The original Sumerian script was adapted for the writing of the Akkadian, Eblaite, Elamite, Hittite, Luwian, Hattic, Hurrian, and Urartian languages, and it inspired the Ugaritic and Old Persian alphabets. Cuneiform writing was gradually replaced by the Phoenician alphabet during the Neo-Assyrian Empire, and by the 2nd century AD, the script had become extinct. Cuneiform documents were written on clay tablets, by means of a blunt reed for a stylus. The impressions left by the stylus were wedge shaped, thus giving rise to the name cuneiform ("wedge shaped", from the Latin cuneus, meaning "wedge"). ] User: Artisans were important in sumerian society because Weegy: their ability to work, their craftsmanship User: what do ziggurats tell us about sumerian socirty?
