By: George Smith
The account runs the gamut of Smith's work, extending briefly into pre-1873 discoveries, his earlier work in translating the final chapter of the Epic of Gilgamesh-the oldest piece of literature in the world- and then moving on to the discoveries made in each successive expedition. Arranged chronologically, Smith gives and excellent rendering of how his artifacts and information were unearthed, cataloged and understood.
