Sumerian Seals

Last week we learnt about the ancient Sumerian people. Most people at this time could not write so they created seals as a kind of signature. The seals were pressed into clay tablets and these tablets could accompany goods to show who had sent them. We made our own seals and today they were finally dry enough to be impressed into clay.
