Babylonian myths, inherited in Mesopotamia from Sumeria, influenced by the ancient Assyrians, represent a pinnacle of human achievement in the period around 1800 BC. Here we find humankind battling with the elements in their Flood myth, a grim creation story and the great Epic of Gilgamesh, one of the earliest recorded literary treasures. Babylon, a powerful city-state, was a center of profound spiritual, economic and military power, themes all represented in the fragments and myths of this book of classic tales. Their gods were the Annunaki.
