This site was developed by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago in collaboration with a team of Chicago Public School teachers. Its purpose is to disseminate knowledge and awareness of this ancient civilization that will lead to a better understanding of ourselves, others, and of current events for the K-12 community. Selected artifacts tell the story of ancient Mesopotamia now present-day Iraq.
This interactive, multimedia site is divided into four sections that are linked on the main page. Subsequent pages offer a top navigation bar and each section has its own table of contents. You will need Shockwave, Flash, and QuickTime plug-ins to view the interactives.
