Eridu in southern Mesopotamia was probably the first city in the world. It was settled in the neolithic and continued to be inhabited for several thousand years. Eventually it was swallowed by the desert as the Babylonian civilization broke down, and the intricate irrigation canals of Mesopotamia fell into disrepair.

For 3000 years the remains of the great city rested unsung under the sands of the desert - it's very existence was first to be rediscovered some two hundred years ago.

In the best Sumerian tradition, this video is a lamentation to the city of cities.

The music in the video is Mendelssohn 3rd symphony a-moll. Performed by Fuldaer Symphonisches Orchester.

Enjoy, but don't expect a single line about the ancient sumerians and the Annunaki. I do not think the Annunaki created the human race.
