Uruk - First City of the Ancient World

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

More than one hundred years ago, discoveries from a German archaeological dig at Uruk, roughly two hundred miles south ofpresent-day Baghdad, sent shock waves through the scholarly world. Founded at the end of the fifth millennium BCE, Uruk was the main force for urbanization in what has come to be called the Uruk period (4000-3200 BCE), during which small, agricultural villages gave way to a larger urban center with a stratified society, complex governmental bureaucracy, and monumental architecture and art. It was here that proto-cuneiform script-the earliest known form of writing-was developed around 3400 BCE. Uruk is known too for the epic tale of its hero-king Gilgamesh, among the earliest masterpieces of world literature.Containing over 480 images, this volume represents the most comprehensive and up-to-date assessment of the archaeologicalevidence gathered at Uruk. More than sixty essays by renowned scholars provide glimpses into the life, culture, and art of the first great city of the ancient world. This volume will be an indispensable reference for readers interested in the ancient Near East and the origins of urbanism.
