Curator's Picks

Dr. Clemens Reichel, Associate Curator of Ancient Near East in the ROM’s Department of World Cultures and a specialist in Mesopotamian archaeology, is the curator of Mesopotamia during its ROM engagement. He comments, “Many things that we rely on in our daily lives originated in ancient Mesopotamia. Visitors will be surprised to learn just how much we owe to the Sumerians, Babylonians, and Assyrians.”
