",Bronze Age, Mesopotamia included.."[edit]

2º paragraph: "Widely considered to be one of the cradles of civilization by the Western world, Bronze Age, Mesopotamia included Sumer and the Akkadian...".

Shouldn't be: "Widely considered to be one of the cradles of civilization by the Western world, Bronze Age Mesopotamia included Sumer and the Akkadian..." ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gottliber (talkcontribs) 17:22, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Absolutely. This comma makes nonsense of this prominent sentence. I would have edited it out but it looks as if I can't. I'm disappointed that no-one has responded to the comment above. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:48, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

Done. Doug Weller talk 14:20, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

Removed needs copy edit and wikify tags! Need references now![edit]


Can this article be extended with a list of well-known standard works on Mesopotamia and its history? Would be nice, thanks


I doubt that "Cuniform was fun too." in the 5.2 Games section is quite up to the finest quality one could hope in such a page. Could someone consider this?

wiki spam[edit]

There was some wiki spam in this that I took out. It was somehow triggered or near this code (see the source under "edit" of this page - which I couldn't get to reproduce.. ??:

social classes[edit]

Should show social classes and why they are what they are and what the people in each social class does. Should name some important people from the social classes and explain their importance.
