[2014] Mole Rat: Western Civilization

Ancient CivilizationSumerian City-StatesBy: Brandon Prevost

The Sumerian City-State of Ur was an important city for early civilization.

The Ziggurat of Ur is very well preserved and is said to be one of the best preserved pieces of ancient history. I was renovated so it is safe for visitors to take a tour there.

The Sumerian City-State of Uruk is a very interesting piece of history to study because it was developed by 3+ other cities that combined to form one, more prosperous city.

This City-State (Uruk) is different from the rest in the way that people wrote about it. A preist from the nearby settlement Ur said "In Uruk, Sumerian civilization has met it's creative peak." It was, and still is viewed as the most advanced Sumerian City-State.
