Complete, Unabridged Guide to Mesopotamia. Get the information you need--fast! This comprehensive guide offers a thorough view of key knowledge and detailed insight. It's all you need. Here's part of the content - you would like to know it all? Delve into this book today!..... : The history of the Ancient Near East begins in the Lower Paleolithic period, and ends with either the arrival of the Achaemenid Empire in the late 6th century BC, or with the Arab Islamic conquest of Mesopotamia and the establishment of the Caliphate in the late 7th century AD, from which point the region came to be known as Iraq. ... According to a recent hypothesis, the Archimedes screw may have been used by Sennacherib, King of Assyria, for the water systems at the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and Nineveh in the 7th century BC, although mainstream scholarship holds it to be a Greek invention of later times. ...Stone stelae, votive offerings, or ones probably commemmorating victories and showing feasts, are also found from temples, which unlike more official ones lack inscriptions that would explain them; the fragmentary Stele of the Vultures is an early example of the inscribed type, and the Assyrian Black Obelisk of Shalmaneser III a large and solid late one. ... The most notable architectural remains from early Mesopotamia are the temple complexes at Uruk from the 4th millennium BC, temples and palaces from the Early Dynastic period sites in the Diyala River valley such as Khafajah and Tell Asmar, the Third Dynasty of Ur remains at Nippur (Sanctuary of Enlil) and Ur (Sanctuary of Nanna), Middle Bronze Age remains at Syrian-Turkish sites of Ebla, Mari, Alalakh, Aleppo and Kultepe, Late Bronze Age palaces at Bogazkoy (Hattusha), Ugarit, Ashur and Nuzi, Iron Age palaces and temples at Assyrian (Kalhu/Nimrud, Khorsabad, Nineveh), Babylonian (Babylon), Urartian (Tushpa/Van Kalesi, Cavustepe, Ayanis, Armavir, Erebuni, Bastam) and Neo-Hittite sites (Karkamis, Tell Halaf, Karatepe). There is absolutely nothing that isn't thoroughly covered in the book. It is straightforward, and does an excellent job of explaining all about Mesopotamia in key topics and material. There is no reason to invest in any other materials to learn about Mesopotamia. You'll understand it all.Inside the Guide: Mesopotamia, Chaldea, Byzantine Empire, Burney Relief, Bronze Age collapse, Bronze Age, Bronze, British Museum, Beer, Barley, Baghdad Battery, Baghdad, Backgammon, Babylonian mathematics, Babylonian astronomy, Babylonian astrology, Babylonia, Babylon, Asuristan, Assyriology, Assyrian people, Assyria (Roman province), Assyria, Assur, Ashur, Art of Mesopotamia, Armenian Highland, Architecture of Mesopotamia, Archaeological looting in Iraq, Aramaic language, Arabic language, Ancient Near East, Amorite language, Alexander the Great, Aleppo, Alabaster, Al-Jazira, Mesopotamia, Akkadian literature, Akkadian language, Akkadian Empire, Adiabene, Adad-apla-iddina, Acheulean, Achaemenid Empire, Achaemenid Assyria, 2nd millennium BC
