Here's a new theme of posts I'm starting. I like learning new stuff. It doesn't matter what the subject is; history, science, literature, technology, whatever! Everytime, I learn something cool, I'm posting it under this header.
I actually am pretty uneducated about ancient history but this is kind of a fun way to learn about Mesopotamia.
To learn more, Wikipedia has a good write up here. Also, the British Museum put together a nice website on it here. Washington State University also has a website but it's a little more of a dry read. You can find it here.
