Between the Rivers
The History of Ancient Mesopotamia / Part 1 of 3DVD - 2006
What pieces of a distant past drift before our mind's eye when ancient Mesopotamia is mentioned? Do we see the temples known as ziggurats, thrust towards the sky by stepped platforms that would bring worshipers closer to the gods they honored? Entire populations paralyzed by fear before a dreaded invader, their dreams haunted by images of their own severed heads aloft? Priests making sacrifices to the gods who ruled over and protected their city? Or the fabled Hanging Gardens of Babylon, their terraces as shadowed by mystery as they are set alight by color? Any of these, of course, may come to mind.
