Sumer: The Sumerians

Mesopotamia - the Sumerians, posted to YouTube by Angels N Demons, April 2014. This documentary film is about an hour long and contains abundant images and information. Ancient and modern images are combined and carved clay artifacts are explained with modern versions, including the reed houses, cuneiform writing, early grain agriculture, and much more.



You can contrast it with Mesopotamia (Sumerians, first civilization on earth) This is an old Coronet video, entitled Ancient Mesopotamia (Revised) from 1953, 1976, Posted to YouTube by Light of Persia in 2009. It provides a nice overview of Sumerian culture and the transition to Babylonian and Assyrian cultures.
