It is an entertaining way to get to know the Sumerians, and to think about the representation of a society. What are its typical features? How to define a multicultural society?
The session can be completed by several readings, chapters from the “Essential traveller guide to Sumer” (available for free on-demand):
- “What does it look like?” and
- “Few words about Sumerian history” and
- "Who else lives in Sumer?".
All the activities can be easily adapted to many different age and level groups, providing additional material for the most interested students, and the expertise and pedagogy of a real assyriologist! (Paul - school teacher)
