Hammurabi’s Code of Laws. This is just like a modern day law book. Well, almost, except for the fact that almost every single law involved someone being killed. This code of laws set everyone straight on what they can and can’t do. (These laws were written on a stone tablet standing over eight feet tall (2.4 meters) that was found in 1901) For example, one of his laws said that if a son hits his father, his hands shall be butchered off. In those times, you would most likely die if your hands are cut off threw loss of blood or even an infection. It did also help that the Babylonians had iron weapons and were pretty messed up when it came to killing people.
