Guiding Question

What were the most important achievements of the Mesopotamian Empires?

The city-states of ancient Sumer were like small independent countries.  They often fought over land and water rights.  They never united into one group which left them vulnerable to attacks by stronger groups. These stronger groups conquered the Sumerian city-states and united them under a single leader or government. Thus forming an empire.
