The Advent of Agriculture in Mesopotamia

Discover the past through authentic evidence from ancient archaeological sites in Mesopotamia! Trace the shift from hunting and gathering to the development of agriculture in the ancient world.

Discover the past ~ Shape the future

Project Archaeology uses archaeological inquiry to foster understanding of past and present cultures; improve social studies and science education; and enhance citizenship education to help preserve our archaeological legacy.

“Discovery is nothing more than observing what is already there.”
