History & archaeology thread

*searches MR for a generalised history & archaeology thread*

*can't find one*

*starts one*

epic! http://etc.ancient.eu/2015/09/24/gig...tablet-v-epic/
Quote:
Miss Hazha Jalal, (manager of the tablets section at the Sulaymaniyah Museum of Iraqi Kurdistan) speaks (using Kurdish language) about this tablet: The tablet dates back to the Neo-Bablyonian period. It is a part of tablet V of the Epic. It was acquired by the Museum in the year 2011 and Dr. Farouk Al-Raw transliterated it. It was written as a poem and this version has added many new things, for example Gilgamesh and his friend met a monkey. We are honored to house this tablet and anyone can visit the Museum during its opening hours from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM. The entry is free for you and your guests. Thank you.

If you ask me the story was much more believable without the unnecessary inclusion of a monkey encounter.

No mere toy this. "Relational artifact" is Furby called by anthropologists. Join Professor Hamamoto on a quest to understand what Furby means to humankind.

I believe "Furby" roughly translates to "shut that fucking thing up before I take the hammer to it" in most languages.
