The Legacy of Mesopotamia

Average rating
4.1 out of 5
Based on 9 Ratings and 1 Reviews

Book Description
This collection explores the spread of culture through literacy from Mesopotamia into Egypt, Palestine and Greece after a system of writing was developed. By gathering evidence from a vast range of material and literary sources from 3000 BC onwards, threads of influence and continuity are traced into the Middle Ages. The effect of recent rediscovery on European art is also explored.
