This is the first systematic attempt to survey in detail the archaeological evidence for the crafts and craftsmanship of the Sumerians, Babylonians, and Assyrians in ancient Mesopotamia (c. 8000-300 BC). P.R.S. Moorey reviews briefly the textual evidence, and goes on to examine in detail a wide range of crafts and materials: stones, both common and ornamental, animal products, ceramics, glazed materials and glass, metals, and building materials.
