Luristan, just north of Sumer, made bronzes similar to the somewhat incongruous bronze breastplates found across ancient America.

By 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.

Sargon and his descendants then ran the untie empire, thereafter called the empire of Sumer and Akkad (2370-2285 B.B.).
