At the Pergamon Museum
Prof. Dr. Astrid Nunn, adjucnt professor for Near Eastern Archaeology invited the Museum group to the Pergamon Museum on 25 February 2016. For 90 minutes the group immersed in the 5th millennium BC in Mesopotamia which is geographically as large as Iraq today. A true “think tank”, it was the birth place of the writing systems and numerous technologies that characterize our culture until present date.
Beginning with Uruk, the city of the demigod Gilgamesh, the journey across the time took us through the manifold discoveries in Assyrian royal city of Assur to the famous Ishtar Gate from Babylon. The participants instantly became the admirer of the Near Eastern history.
