Royal Ontario Museum, Eaton Theatre, Level 1B 100 Queens Park, Toronto, ON
Ancient Mesopotamia was home to some of the world's earliest states and empires. Politically, these entities were controlled by rulers that were both powerful as well as charismatic--from tribal leaders in Neolithic village context to powerful kings of Sumer, Assyria, and Babylonia that controlled much of the known world. This lecture will describe the significant changes in political ideology over time by exploring Mesopotamian leaders through monumental architecture, art, and ancient inscriptions.
