Offers a look at the delectable secrets of Mesopotamia. The author's broad perspective takes us inside the religious rites, everyday rituals, attitudes and taboos, and even the detailed preparation techniques involving food and drink in Mesopotamian high culture during the second and third millenniums BCE, as the Mesopotamians recorded them.

Everyday Life in Ancient Mesopotamia by Jean Bottero Everyday Life in Ancient Mesopotamia, Hardback (July 2001)

Jean Bottero and his colleagues take the reader on a voyage of discovery into the public and private realms of the lives of our first civilized ancestors, looking at everyday life in Ancient Mesopotamia.

Mesopotamia by Jean Bottero Mesopotamia, Paperback (July 1995)
