Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:
1. Ted Talk – Soraya Field Fiorio: The epic of Gilgamesh, the king who tried to conquer death. “In 1849, in the ancient city of Nineveh in Iraq, archaeologists sifted through dusty remains, hoping to find records to prove that Bible stories were true. What they found instead was a 4,000-year-old story inscribed on crumbling clay tablets— a story that was so riveting, the first person to translate it started stripping from excitement. Soraya Field Fiorio tells the epic tale of Gilgamesh. [Directed by Amir Houshang Moein, narrated by Jack Cutmore-Scott, music by Stephen LaRosa].” (ted.com)
