What Are the Oldest Rulebooks in the World?

guest post by Cay Hasselmann ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The two oldest references on a business rule language I personally could find was in the British Library. One was on the building of the Pyramid in the Cheops Dynasty (2613-2498 BC), where 100,000 workers were involved for over 20 years. In some scrolls you will find what I would say are part of a basic rulebook.       The other is from China during the Chou Dynasty (1046–256 BC), which is a rulebook for government officials.
