TTC - Between the Rivers: The History of Ancient Mesopotamia


Between the Rivers: A History of Ancient Mesopotamia will illuminate that shadow, taking you back to a time when the first cities arose in Mesopotamia and kings created complex bureaucracies to rule expanding territories, thus fostering the invention of writing and other technologies.

It is truly a remarkable journey and adventure, through a land where the real history is even more astounding than its legends. Your guide, Dr. Alexis Q. Castor, has twice been named Most Influential Professor by Franklin & Marshall's senior class. Experienced both in the classroom and on archaeological digs, she plunges you into the daily life of cultures such as Sumer and Akkad and animates peoples such as the Assyrians and Medes, weaving together her own evocation of Persian culture with the works of the great Greek historians, Herodotus and Thucydides.
