IRAQ: The Cradle of Civilization

I found this video today which i found interesting. I have always believed that you should study history as far back as you can in order for you to fully understand what is taking place in the present.

This documentary is about Iraq and its earliest civilisation. I feel that not enough people out there know a lot about Iraq’s history and this can’t be a good thing as all we get to see on the tv is death and destruction.

After thousands of years as a hunter/gatherer, man built the first cities 5,000 years ago on the banks of the Euphrates in Southern Iraq. Civilization began. City life transformed the human race with the glorious cultures of Mesopotamia such as Ur, and Babylon.
