Summary

Empires rose and fell along the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates, while a civilization as yet unsurpassed emerged. Discover myths, history, and more from the world’s most ancient civilization!

Mesopotamia, the land between two rivers, was an ancient region located in modern-day Iraq and parts of Iran, Syria, and Turkey. From the founding of Eridu in the sixth millennium BCE to the fall of Babylon in the first, the history of Mesopotamia spans almost 5,000 years. It was not only the earliest but also the greatest civilization in human history.

Sumerians, Assyrians, Akkadians, and Babylonians were just some of the associated cultures. For a long time, the only way to understand their history has been through dense academic sources. This is in part due to the huge time frame and the lack of easily understood ancient sources. 

Such inaccessibility of information means that few know little about it. As such, it is essential to bring their knowledge and history into the light, allowing everyone to benefit from the fascinating insights of the very first human civilization. 

Inside this audiobook you will discover:

  • Epics and mythological stories, including the famous epic of Gilgamesh, the Babylonian creation myth, the Enuma Elish, and many more.
  • Sargon of Akkad (Saddam Hussein celebrated this great emperor).
  • How Mesopotamia laid foundations for human civilization - technology, laws, education, languages and more. 
  • Old Babylon - fascinating insights from one of the most famous ancient cities. 
  • Why the introduction of a syllabic writing system was one of the largest contributors to the fall of Mesopotamia. 

And much, much more… 

Whether you're an ancient history enthusiast or just a listener looking to add to your knowledge, inside you will discover a wealth of cultural history, mythology and more in this audiobook.

Ancient Mesopotamia

I was always so interested in learning the stories in history and this includes the ancient mesopotamia. I love how the author laid out a good foundation to better grasp the history of the babylon.
