About the Event
Previous participation and previous knowledge not required.
What kind of trade? and where? Trade in goods seen through Sumerian mythology and cuneiform texts.
Sumerian trade, flourishing especially from the 3rd millennium BCE onward, offers the earliest evidence of a dense network of communication and exchange that took place in the Near East.
Through analyses of cuneiform sources, it is interesting to see the different facets between reality, myth and symbolism.
