The Sumerians may not have invented beer after all | Mesopotamia | Scoop.it
Archaeological finds from cuneiform tablets and remnants of different vessels from over 4,000 years ago show that even around the dawn of civilisation, fermented cereal juice was highly enjoyed by Mesopotamia's inhabitants.

I was completely unaware that Sumerians were known for inventing beer.
Andrew Nayyar's curator insight, February 13, 2014 11:46 AM

Amazing article, especially if you enjoy drinking beer. This article dives into the possiblity of Sumerians brewing beer, making beer bread, and even worshiping the art of brewing with hymns. Scientist art still looking for a recipe as this is the only missing factor in the equation. The matirials, and brewing locations, and even scripts have all been found but a recipe is yet to be found. This is probably because it was a spoken recipe as many were at the time.

Ancient History "Between The Rivers" Assyrians c 5000 BCE and today

The Sumerians were one of the earliest urban societies to emerge in the world, in Southern Mesopotamia. They are the first civilization to be documented in c 5000 BCE. Assyria became part of the Empire of the Sumerian. The Greek referred to Assyria as Mesopotamia "between the rivers". The Assyrians were the pioneers of many aspects of modern life today, yet many people don't know about their existents and importance in the history of mankind. 

Today the ancient Assyrian territory is part of several nations as Iraq, northeast Syria, northwest Iran, and southeastern Turkey.

This short documentary was part of my cinematic storytelling final project in my first year at Academy of Art University. It was written, directed, produced, shot and edited by myself. My first project that I edited on Avid. Enjoy!

The people during that time had daily life’s that are very similar to our daily lives today surprisingly. They as well had an appetite for meats of all sorts including fish. They also had a type of door to their houses that worked like a door today with a key and lock.
