Summary

Ancient Mesopotamia, Third Edition brings to life the period in history when the first civilizations arose. Using maps, charts, documents, and works of art to enhance the text and reconstruct life at all levels of society at the time, this book examines the people, culture, and geography of the land between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, generally known as the cradle of civilization. The first part covers topics such as animals in daily life, writing, religion and ritual, and the art of pottery; the second part looks at the kingdoms and empires of ancient Mesopotamia, including the Assyrians, Israel and Judah, and Persia. Arranged in colorful double-page spreads, Ancient Mesopotamia, Third Edition offers great insights into the world of ancient Mesopotamia.
