Taken together, the civilizations of Sumer, Assyria, and Persia have helped form the modern makeup of Mesopotamia, western Asia, and the world. However, to really understand why things are the way they are, it’s important to break up this historical timeline and spend some time learning about each society. Only by doing this will you be able to fully appreciate the powerful impact these ancient peoples had on our modern world.

One of the narrators was a distracting amateur. Would pause as though end of sentence when it was just a comma, breaking up the thought. But the worst was that he consistently said “divulian” or “antidivulian” when the actual word is DILUVIAN or ANTIDILUVIAN. In a nonfiction historical work, this does serious damage to credibility.
