I have discovered a new site for my articles

On this profile page you can view several chapters from my history book “Dawn and Sunset: A Tale of the Oldest Cities in the Near East”. The Tower of Babel is taken from Introduction: this is an essay comparing the famous Bible legend with the early Mesopotamian civilization. The Birth of Proto-writing is borrowed from Unit III; it describes the early steps of writing as an accounting experiment serving the needs of emerging urban bureaucracy. The Divine Round Dance belongs to Unit IV; it explains the role of the Sumerian calendar. In the Workshop of a Sumerian Sculptor represents Unit V; it traces some trends in monumental sculpture in Sumerian and Akkadian art.

I am going to upload three more chapters on this site and then start publishing articles from my new manuscript.
