Description

Volume 2 from a set of 2. It was said, "A picture is worth a thousand words." True, but what if a picture is hard to understand or does not explain what we are looking at? This happens quite often in the vast literature and history of ancient civilizations. Especially, when the inscriptions on or under the pictures or illustrations are written in a language we do not understand, such as Cuneiform, Ugaritic, Akkadian, Sumerian, Phoenician, and similar writing systems of the ancient Middle and Near East. In addition, there are thousands of slabs, cylinder seals, tablets, and obelisks of ancient and/or vanished civilizations, which are hard to decipher. This book was written in order to deal with and to explain all these concerns, and especially to provide the readers with sufficient guidance, translation and explanation of major archeological finds, ranging from a figurine to a massive monument.
