Mesopotamia. Civilization begins

Mesopotamia, in modern-day Iraq, was home to the remarkable ancient civilizations of Sumer, Akkad, Babylonia, and Assyria. From the rise of the first cities around 3500 BC, through the mighty empires of Nineveh and Babylon, to the demise of its native culture around AD 100, Mesopotamia produced some of the most powerful and captivating art of antiquity and led the world in astronomy, mathematics, and other sciences – a legacy that lives on today. Based on the incomparable collections of the Musée du Louvre, composed largely of objects excavated by French archaeologists in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, this book provides an overview of Mesopotamian art and culture via works of outstanding beauty and importance.
