Where did slavery began?

Slavery has been around for thousands of years. Slaves were seen as loot or money just as gold.
The first recorded instances of slavery date back to 1760 BC, as written in the Code of Hammurabi, a Babylonian record of law. Unfortunately, slavery seems to have began with civilization. There isn't much evidence of slavery in hunter-gatherer societies, however.
