A group of archaeologists from the Girsu Project have unearthed an ancient Sumerian palace and temple in southeastern Iraq. The structures were discovered using aerial remote sensing and are over 4,500 years old. More than 200 cuneiform tablets, determined to be administrative documents, were found within the mud-brick palace. The Sumerians are generally credited with inventing cuneiform as a writing script. It appears that the temple complex was dedicated to the Sumerian god Ningirsu, after whom the city of Girsu was named. These discoveries will help scholars understand the early Sumerian culture in greater detail. To learn more about the Sumerians and their biblical connection, read Dr. Charles Aling’s article “Cultural Change and the Confusion of Language in Ancient Sumer” from the Winter 2004 issue of Bible and Spade (see link below).
