bronze breastplates found across ancient America.
2400 B.C. the Sumerian king of Uruk, Lugalzaggisi, had united
the Middle East into one great empire from the Persian Gulf
to the Mediterranean. He ruled it for twenty-five years. Then
a junior officer, a Semite, Sargon of Akkad, revolted. He captured
Lugalzaggisi and exhibited him in a cage at the gate of the
temple of Enlil at Nippur. The site of Akkad has not yet been
discovered but it is generally believed to have been a little
north of Babylon.
and his descendants then ran the untie empire, thereafter called
the empire of Sumer and Akkad (2370-2285 B.B.).
