Mesopotamian Museum Project

Relevant background information: The war and continued unrest in Iraq has posed a grave danger to the safety and security of countless archaeological sites and artifacts, including those housed in the Baghdad Museum. Losing artifacts and jeopardizing historic sites is an unintended consequence of war which can have a significant effect on our understanding of history. Fortunately, there are many Mesopotamian artifacts safe and sound in museums around the world.
Project objective: You must select 5 objects which are authentically Mesopotamian and were created between the years 3500 BCE and 500 BCE to include in a virtual exhibition for which you will be writing the catalog. You will also create a replica of one of the objects.
