The Mystery Of Noah's Ark says
An Archaeological Institute of America Lecture

Dr. Irving Finkel
Assistant Keeper of Ancient Mesopotamian Script,
British Museum

A story pivotal to the world undergoes a radical new interpretation. Irving Finkel, a renowned expert on cuneiform, deciphered writing on a 4,000-year-old piece of clay that cast new light on the story of Noah’s Ark. His enthralling real-life detective story began with the 2008 arrival at the British Museum of a single, palm-sized cuneiform tablet that dated from about 1850 BCE. It proved to be a copy of the Babylonian Myth of the Flood that included precise instructions for building a large boat. Hear the newest details about one of the oldest tales on earth.
