#AceHistoryNews – Aug.09: The world’s oldest known library was founded sometime in the 7th century B.C. for the “royal contemplation” of the Assyrian ruler Ashurbanipal #AceHistoryDesk reports

Located in modern day Iraq, when it was excavated the site included a trove of some 30,000 cuneiform tablets organized according to subject matter. Most of its titles were archival documents, religious incantations and scholarly texts, but it also housed several works of literature including the 4,000-year-old “Epic of Gilgamesh.

Happy Reading! #books #libraries #reading
