ISBN: 9781433996405

In a fascinating view of life as it was lived in an ancient civilization, this book describes the array of technologies invented and adopted by “the world’s first urban culture.” For several thousand years, Mesopotamian dynasties flourished as world powers with the help of never-before-seen tools including writing, the wheel, calendars, iron casting, sewage systems, irrigation ditches, and glass blowing. The function and operation of each innovation are described in clear prose and supported by highly detailed illustrations, photographs, and “Technical Specs”—a list of relevant facts about each technology. Back matter includes a time line of Mesopotamian history, a glossary, a list of relevant books and Web sites, and an index.
