The epic of Gilgamesh is the oldest major recorded literature that history books decided to care about. The twelve tablet epic poem originating from the Sumerians has been a soul searching window into ancient Mesopotamian cultures such as the Sumerians and Babylonians. By the time the Assyrian copies of the story were found, the epic had become practically standardized by the Babylonian version. A new discovery of ancient Assyrian Cuneiform tablets finally shows the Assyrian take on the famous mythical tale. In a new library near the ancient city of Nineveh, several Assyrian Gilgamesh Fan Fictions paint a starkly new picture of the Mesopotanian civilization. In contrast to the morally loose Babylonians, the Assyrians are revealed through this art to be warring, in love with Justice, and crowd pleasing.
