A British Museum touring exhibition - Ancient Iraq: new discoveries at Great North Museum: Hancock

About

In this family-friendly exhibition, fascinating stories of ancient Iraq come to life through over 80 amazing items from the British Museum. Learn how 4,000-year-old cities like Girsu shaped today’s urban way of life, from laws and transport to writing and how we measure time.

Stand face to face with the historical king Gudea. Discover the Epic of Gilgamesh – one of the earliest great works of literature – and explore how current archaeologists are continuing to reveal the secrets of Iraq’s ancient empires.

Generously supported by the Dorset Foundation.
