Code of Hammurabi

Here is the link to the website with the complete text of the Code of Hammurabi.

EXTRA CREDIT OPPORTUNITY: If you would like to earn some extra credit (maximum 10 points), then please copy 5 of the laws as written, translate them (tell what they mean in easy to understand language), and give a modern equivalent (if there is one, if not, please mention that). You could use federal, state, or local laws for the modern equivalent - please be sure to tell me which one it is.

Good luck!
