Gorgeous 3D animations showcase the ancient city of Babylon (in Mesopotamia) in its architectural peak in 6th century BC.

Reconstruction of the ancient city of Babylon was created by me between March and May of 2013 for the Mesopotamia exhibition of the Royal Ontario Museum.

Babylon    , the old area called Mesopotamia, originally known as Sumer, and later as Sumer and Akkad, lies between the rivers Eufrat and Tiger, south of Baghdad today.

The kingdom was composed of about 12 towns surrounded by villages.

Disclosing Knowledge from the Sumerian Tablets - The Sumerians were highly evolved for their time and are known for starting the first civilization and building the first settlements worthy of being called cities.
