Sixty centuries ago, four thousand years before the birth of Christ, Sumer was the home of a proud and flourishing culture. The first references to it that we have in our literature occur in the Bible, where it is called "the land of Shinar." This ancient kingdom was the cradle of mankind, the legendary site of the Garden of Eden. Yet as recently as seventy years ago we did not even know that it really existed and today it is little more than a flat, dun-colored expanse of sun scorched mud in a corner of Iraq.
