The program „Mesopatamia” takes us into the fascinating world of the ancient civilisation of the middle east. We explore the greatest inventions of that time, how they built their homes, great palaces and entire cities. We reveal how they created the letters from which todays alphabet, used in all languages in the world, was derived and how the first wheel came into existence. We probe the artists' beautiful sculptures made from bronze and gold, monuments made from stone and elaborately sculptured and painted musical instruments.

Portal Guardian from Nimrud

In addition to the educational games and quizzes we also have a story about an old merchant called Abraham and his wise daughter Ramida who saved a city from Goliath and his army.
