Jonno Plays : Fantastic work. Very watchable!
Jonny five : This is my favorite period of history. Sumeria through the end of Persia....I wish someone would make more games based in this period. An open world thing would be amazing!
Amadeu Macedo : As customary, I loved this meticulously researched documentary. Incidentally, Pietro della Valle (1586-1652) was the first European who found the ruins of UR, while travelling through Mesopotamia along with his Assyrian Christian wife in 1625. Because at that time the Persian and Ottoman empires were at war over the rule of Bagdad, his travelling guides suggested that they located a site in order to hide from a suspicious group of men, who looked as though they were galloping in their direction. As such, by sheer coincidence they "stumbled" upon a huge structure in their horizon, to which they flocked and where they spent a few days. Della Valle was fascinated by the monumental size and quality of the huge walls as well as to the multitude of cuneiform writings which appeared throughout the site. Thanks for yet another wonderful upload.
Taylor Brewer : The line from the king list “Who was king? Who wasn’t king?” is honestly one of my favorite things ever
Bauks : No aliens?
No extra planets?
No electricity?
No time-travel?
No communication arrays?
Not one mention of a handbag!?

Just what I needed.
Thank you, good sir. :)

Sumerian Origins and Ancient DNA | Geneticist Razib Khan

In this episode we bring you the origins of the Sumerians with none other than the geneticist Razib Khan.

In this episode Mr. Khan explains passionately that if we could genetically type any ancient People, he would choose the Sumerians. Why? Because these are arguably the first historic nation. The first self-conscious ethnic group which operated by the rules which we define as the fundamentals of literate civilization. Strangely, they are an ethno-linguistic isolate.

He goes on to explain what the term ethno-linguistic isolate means and how it applies to these ancient peoples, who even though they interacted with their neighbors stood apart from their Semitic neighbors like the Akkadians until later they became absorbed entirely through military and cultural conquests but that their legacy stays with us today in various forms including how we tell time.

He goes on to explain what his original model was for the origins of the Sumerians and how it changed over time and why?

What does his current model tell us about the Sumerians and their origins and foundation within ancient Mesopotamia?

Why are we struggling to genetically type populations in modern Iraq and Iran? How has Covid 19 made studying ancient history and peoples harder?

And finally, Mr. Khan hits us with his predictions of what we will learn the next decade when it comes to ancient DNA studies.

Spore Murph : What he said was perfectly reasonable speculation, but this video's title is once again misleading since it does not present ANY information about Ancient DNA from the Sumerians.
SkeletalBassman : Razib gave a great presentation, allowing for plenty of nuance but still giving us passion and joy. Would love to hear more from him.
lee marlin : Razib Khan:
Interesting perspective. I like the way he gets his thoughts out there. Informed but not opinionated. Looking for knowledge not for credit a good trait in a researcher.
Multi Vitamin : I've been thinking recently about Epic of Gilgamesh, and I came to a conclusion that, all those events are actually ancestral memories of grandparents of their grandparents, back in the paleo-neolithic boundary where peoples just started forming groups and identity. Bilga mes meaning the ancestor hero, where they put all of those remembered brave men that cared for and lead its tribe, defended against monsters such as sabertooths and mammoths, how they inspired generations of young men to stand up for their people and lead them to better lands. The epic explains how the elements didn't favor them and how dark inner humanity often had the better of a man than righteousness and morality. The nature of a man can be tracked from its very beginnings which are portraited as monsters, beasts and characters as Humbaba. Enkidu himself could be one of the last remaining Neanderthals or some extinct human species, therefore being hairy and alien, but welcomed, as he is human as any other. Which could interpret the meeting of different species and tribes. Gilgamesh finding the way of immortality may be a metaphor for generations of orally passed stories of great men and warriors that kept the qualities and values of the culture they were building. In a way, Gilgamesh, the great heroes of our ancestors, became immortals in our tradition and culture up until today.

8. The Sumerians - Fall of the First Cities


In the dusts of Iraq, the ruins of the world's first civilization lie buried.

This episode, we travel into the extremely distant past to look at the Sumerians. These ancient people invented writing and mathematics, and built some of the largest cities that the world had ever seen. Find out about the mystery of their origins, and learn how they rose from humble beginnings to form the foundation of all our modern societies. With myths, proverbs and even some recreated Sumerian music, travel back to where it all began, and find out how humanity's first civilization fell.

Ldawg711 : This is one of the most.. if not THE most professionally done, educational, absolutely fascinating channels on YouTube.
JD Plant : An incredible wave of loneliness washed over me as I watched the concluding elements of your presentation and I had to fight the tears, Mr. Cooper. It is bewildering to think that so many eons ago existed the beating heart of human civilization and that its physical end result is a desolate pile of sand and rubble. (To clarify, I am referring to the remnants of past great civilizations and former cities that have existed in Iraq, not the current vibrant country.) Let these be educational lessons that we have to constantly ponder as we continue to abuse our own habitat to a point of tumult. I am constantly fascinated by the monumental history of this part of the world with the pull and tug of timeline events that have had everlasting effects. Even though very little remains about the Sumerians, they did leave an indelible mark on all world religions as their recollections have been passed down in one form or another for several millennia.
Víctor Acedo Matellán : I just love the balance between rigorous historical fact and mesmerizing storytelling
Maria E Gonzalez : What a gift for me, with your voice and the way you narrate this awesome theme. Is as if I was in front of you. I am 76 years old and just went to elementary school, but in those days we learned a little tiny bit of these cultures. Thank you so much for this opportunity to keep learning in such a wonderful way! Blessing on your way for you to keep doing this and May your life be surrounded with all the blessings of health love and prosperity! Mayu.
