Unit 1 Discussion: The Lawcode of Hammurabi Role: Slave 1.Based on the Code, what rights, responsibilities, and protections do you have? 2. From the point of view of your role, does the Code provide equality for you relative to other members of the society given the culture of the times and place? Please provide examples to support your answer. The code does not provide equality for me compared to other members of society. Code 17 states: If any one find runaway male or female slaves in the open country and bring them to their masters, the master of the slaves shall pay him two shekels of silver. This example shows that slaves are treated as property or goods that can be purchased, not human beings.
