Sumerian is a very ancient language and is not much about it, due to the fact that the location of sumeria is mostly in iraq, I became interested on this subject about a year ago and is one author name zacharia stichin, that worte on a fictional book about the sumerians and their advance civilization. www.emayzine.com... www.tomgilmore.com...

I love ancient history, it is say that Abraham left the town of sumer on the outside the city of sumeria, in other worlds Abraham was from sumeria. Thats is very interesting. Sumeria is supposed to be the craddle of civilization.

You can see (hear) Modern day examples of Sumerian Language spoken in Hungary. The HUngarian Language appears to be closely tied to Sumer, with examples of simalar words for many objects and expressions. Sumer is one of the most fascinating subjects in archeology. there is a lot of assumptions and guessing, but it worth a look nonetheless.

I will like to research into sumeria but we have to deal with this area of the world being in iraq, most of what we have now on sumeria is from before Sadam when archeologist were able to work on the area.

Funny thing is...the United States now holds control of iraq for the most part....archeological teams COULD be sent back in now...

would be fascinating to get new data...

You do not need to quote an entire post that is directly above yours.

Here is a site with Sumerian artifacts, carvings, cylinder seals, etc. Some educated folks do not like Sitchen and think he is a loose cannon. Since I do not have any of that fancy store bought college knowledge, I have no problem with him.

Very nice link, for sumeria to be such an ancient civilization they were very good artistically, it is a comparizon of the hieroglyph of Enki as a serpent because he was the keeper of the secrets or PTAH, represented the double helix of DNA. You can find this in ancient egypt but it actually came from sumeria, also the symbol for medicine can be found in sumeria, very odd, some atributed sumeria to be a race of people from another planet, because they were very advance in science and medice.

Do you know something I don't?
will you share with us I got interested in Sumeria about 2 years ago when I found out it came from the iraqui area being that area one that have most of the ancient cities in the middle east. And actually I was researching on were Abraham was native of, being him the father of christianity.

I am very interested in the evidence of alliance, and from the research I did, look like in many case aliens speak ancient Samarian language. Does anyone know how this language appeared? Was it created by people or brought over from the aliens?

I too became interested in ancient mesopotamia and egypt and a good website with a lot of books and core texts is Etana.

etana.org...

Another good website with texts and abooks is Internet Archive - I managed to download the original Abydos books by Petrie and those are not so easy to find...


www.archive.org...

Hope they help !
