Please tell Dr Finkel he never needs to worry that we will fall asleep listening to him talk, as he's always so fascinating!

I love falling asleep to his voice, but I can only do that with videos I've already watched, because otherwise I'm too fascinated!

Janitor Queen I worked, in a humble position, at the British museum for a while and had to deal with all sorts of people. Some were unbearably arrogant and treated "lesser" people with disdain, some were basically decent, some were real characters. Professor Finkel always said hello, always was willing to stop and chat about anything, treated everyone equally, always in a cheerful mood, and is one of only two people who I remember with complete respect. A real gentleman and scholar in every way.

excellent lecture! thank you ❤️ I've read The Epic of Gilgamesh and when Enkidu died, Gilgamesh is in such pain and denial that he stayed by his side hoping that his friend wasn't really dead. Only when the worms came out of Enkidu's eyes did he finally accept the truth. This to me is so very heart wrenching and relatable.

My first introduction to Mesopotamia - the land between the Euphrates and the Tigris - was by my History teacher, a heavyweight boxer in the hours that he did not stand in front of a class of adolescents in high school. Thank you Irving for rekindling his enthusiasm which rubbed off on me. When writing to a select group of friends - some now long gone - I ended my letters with: "It is our duty to keep the written word ALIVE!"

Janitor Queen It's nice to see someone else doesn't think documentaries and lectures should be 90% a person's face. It's even getting worse - the face shots are getting closer and closer filling more and more of the screen - apparently the isolation on the face isn't good enough when it can BE EVEN CLOSER AND MORE FACE!! The right side of my youtube page right now is nothing but thumbnails of closeups on faces!! But I'm cool with the little inset of Irving. He has something interesting to say behind his (actually interesting) face. :)

Great presentation. What a privilege. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Sumerians have the first recorded : Advanced writing Medicine Art and literature Maths Trigonometry Astronomy Advanced agriculture Wheel Laws Advanced arquitecture Commerce and external relationships And a longer list of "first advanced... " I just wonder how did it all appear all of a sudden? They have their own history of Creation and a list of Kings with dates... I'm, we are so proud of your work, research and sharing your knowledge and opinions... But I find it hard to reconcile such an advanced civilization developing so quickly without a good reason for it. Thanks for your great videos. 👍🏽😘

It's such a close call, who is the world's greatest nerd, Richard Garriot or Irving Finkel. "I want to film a movie in space, so I'm gonna revolutionize gaming, thus become a millionaire and while we're at it I also dive to the deepest point to do some math, when I'm not back home at my LARP castle". There's something to be said about that. But when you're the guy translates and thus revives the oldest boardgame rules known to mankind, while also being probably the best science presenter and comedian the world has to offer - that's hard to beat and re-enacting Atra-Hasis is also quite the cherry on top. The best thing about him is though, that his passion for the subject is actually quite infectious. Makes you actually wanna do the world's most unpopular job. Now that's a feat.

Very appreciated sir! Good to see a new presentation. I always wondered why the clay tablets are shaped like little biscuits or like bed pillows and ovate at crosssection instead of being more flat faced and squarish? The smaller round flat tablets i hadnt seen before. Perhaps because it is a school lesson.
