My article, An Outlook on the Sumerian Agriculture, has been viewed by over 3,400 visitors-my personal record so far. It is an old version from the first edition of my book “Dawn and Sunset”. Actually, an introduction to Unit IV about Sumerian agriculture-see http://www.ibuzzle.com/articles/an-outlook-on-the-sumerian-agriculture.html

A new, extended version of the whole unit, including the above mentioned extract appears at https://www.academia.edu/6658496/Beyond_the_Threshold_of_Rain_Agriculture

This is from the second edition of the book.

Besides, a chapter from Unit 5, Arts and Crafts, devoted to the Sumerian sculpture, was published at https://scriggler.com/DetailPost/Opinion/22425

The chapter is called, The Inner World of Statues: In the Workshop of a Sumerian Sculptor. The chapter discusses the meaning of sculptures and the social status of its customers.

The Sumerian Astronomical Calendar

Standard

A chapter from my book, “Dawn and Sunset”, has been published at https://scriggler.com/DetailPost/Story/21077

This is a very friendly site for writers looking for new ways of building their platform. The article is called “The Divine Round Dance: The Sumerian Astronomical Calendar”. It belongs to Unit IV of my book which tells about Sumerian agriculture.

On the same site I published another chapter,The Birth of Proto-Writing at  https://scriggler.com/DetailPost/Story/19645

Taken from Unit III of my book, it tells the story of proto-cuneiform, one of the earliest scripts in the world, launched by accountants to present well-documented reports to their superiors.
