I need help answering my thesis paper

The Thesis Paper needs to be 1-2 pages long (3 at the most), in 12-point Times New Roman font with 1” margins on all sides. The Thesis Paper must have at least two Secondary sources (one of which must be Scholarly sources) and one Primary source (check the source guide for help on what these different types of sources are). Check the template at the bottom for a Thesis Paper to view the requirements of the assignment.

Requirements: two pages

just a reminder to refer to the old thesis paper proposal you wrote for me in order to answer this paper. The thesis is basically the answer you have for the question proposal, and each body paragraph has to a theme or a specific topic that supports the thesis as shown in the template. Please follow the template when writing the paper and make sure it is clear and not more than the page limit.

And make sure you note the comment he made of ” two pages is not a whole lot of content that you have to provide here. I would really like you to confine your discussion to just one of these kingdoms or time periods. You will only have the space to discuss one.

For this thesis paper, I will discuss the Sumerian Kingdom, which existed between 4100-1750 BCE alongside Egyptian establishment between 7000BCE and 332 BCE. I will identify and discuss similarities between Sumerian and Egyptian civilization, particularly paying attention to the cultural and political systems. Sumer was the southernmost region of ancient Mesopotamia, comprised of Kuwait and Iraq in modern-day (Mathisen,159).  It was regarded as the cradle for civilizations. The name Sumer is associated with Akkadian, the northern Mesopotamia language, and it meant “the land of the civilized kings.” The Sumerian empire comprised of different cities including Uruk, Eridu, Ur, Lagash, Kish, Nippur and others. Most ancient Mesopotamians thought that Eridu was the oldest city since gods gave it as a gift to cultivate society.  As a matter of fact, Eridu is the oldest city where civilization began. The Sumerian empire is divided into different dynasties beginning the Ubaid period (5000-4100BCE), the Uruk period (4100-2900 BCE), the early dynastic period (2900-2334 BCE), The Akkadian Period ( 2334-2218 BCE), The Gutian Period (2218-2047 BCE), and The Ur III Period (2047-1750 BCE). Compared to the six dynasties, the Uruk dynasty is the most popular. There are many important concepts, innovation, and inventions associated with ancient Sumerian civilizations which are on record today.  Essentially Sumerians receive recognitions for “inventing” time and dividing day and night into 12 hours each, minutes into 60 seconds, and hours into 60 minutes.
