Scientists: Sumerians do not fit in the traditional history

The Sumerian civilization, its level of development does not fit into the framework of traditional history at all. This conclusion was reached by scientists in the study of the civilization of the Sumerians.

Thus, it turned out that the level of development of the ancient state was much higher than that of their contemporaries.

The Sumerian civilization existed more than 4 thousand years ago. The Sumerian doctors did complex surgeries, there was a parliamentary system to protect poor people, citizens knew cuneiform. That is, it was even a higher civilization than appeared much later.

Despite the fact that there is little information, even what is, causes surprise among historians.

The Sumerians invented a bow and wheel, a sewage system, and they traded with their neighbours. Moreover, the ancient Sumerians already knew about the existence of Uranus. Let’s note, the modern society discovered the planet only in the 18th century.

The Sumerians lived in the historical region of Southern Mesopotamia – this is the southern part of present-day Iraq, in the interfluve of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

The Sumerians built cities, established a monarchy, invented writing.

They turned the dried up lands into fertile ones by building reservoirs and breaking through canals. Irrigated agriculture has made them prosperous. In addition, the Sumerians invented a plow, a cart on wheels, sailing boats. All this contributed to higher yields.

Gradually the Sumerians began to develop trade, skilled craftsmen appeared.

The cities were first ruled by councils of elders. Then military leaders began to be appointed as the chiefs in the cities. Gradually the post became hereditary.

The Sumerians were excellent mathematicians. They used not only the decimal, but also the sexagesimal system.

Approximately in 2350 BC. Semitic tribes captured the Sumerians. The Sumerians were replaced by the civilizations of Babylon and Assyria, who preserved the laws, writing and religion of the Sumerians.

The existence of an ancient civilization was first pondered not by archaeologists, but by linguists who tried to decipher the Assyrian and Babylonian cuneiform texts. The combination of hieroglyphs, syllabic and alphabetic linguistic symbols made it difficult to read the texts, and also suggested that this language dates back to a much more ancient writing.
