They made sure that their king would have everything he needed for his journey to the afterlife. The Egyptians even mummified the pharaohs in order to preserve their body. They believed that their souls would leave the body at the time of death. The bodies needed to be preserved so the soul would be able to recognize the body it was returning to. After mummification, the kings were placed in tombs in the pyramids, along with gold, food, and other offerings.
Hammurabi’s code I think was in fact just. The laws that Hammurabi got from the gods did protect the weak as stated they would in the Epilogue of the Code.

One innovation of the Middle Kingdom was a new type of sculpture called the block statue, in which a seated human figure taken the rough shape of the original stone block. Subjects were rendered as if wrapped in a sheet with their knees drawn up. Their distended heads and feet make them look like hunkering birds, but the taut fabric between the legs made a good flat surface for hieroglyphs. However, the most thoughtful innovations of Mentuhotep II 's temple are not architectural but spiritual. First, it is the most basic funeral parlor temple where the king is not just the recipient of offerings but rather passes ceremonies for the gods (in this case Amun-Ra).
Deborah believes some scientists in London had cloned a human looking just like her mother. Skloot explains that the scientists had cloned her mother’s cells, not a human.

In Neolithic Period, from 7200 -6700 BC, Jericho people rebuilt the dead members’ skulls in a monumental scale using various materials and placed them on shelves as a means of remembering. It was also a form of ancestor worship. Move to Sumer, around 2500 BC, Sumerians buried the dead with a number of goods such as instruments.

The many gods associated with the religion of the Aztecs, the people who ruled Mexico in the 15th century, had a special role in Aztec culture.
