Ask Mr. Donn
Were the Sumerians good craftsmen and builders?
Yes. The Sumerians were clever craftsmen. They invented the kiln so they could bake bricks to make their homes and walls sturdier. They made beautiful things with the materials on hand - jewelry of precious gold and lapis, fancy chairs, and unglazed vases that kept water cool. They made musical instruments like the harp and shepherds pipes. Sumerian Art
