Mesopotamian Treasures in Toronto

The Mesopotamia Exhibit will be opening this weekend at Toronto’s Royal Ontario Museum

It will feature over 170 treasured artifacts, most never seen before in Canada.  Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilization, was located in an area of modern-day Iraq, northeast Syria and southeast Turkey.

The exhibit opens on June 22nd and runs until January 5th, 2014.  We’ll speak to one of the curators next week.
