The purpose of the "Ancient Records Series" was to make the historical documents of ancient Near East accessible in English. The written records left us by the ancient Egyptians, Sumerians, Babylonians, and Assyrians furnish the only means for arranging and studying the events in the life of the people of the ancient world in their chronological sequence. In Egypt most of the records were engraved upon steles, obelisks, and temple walls; in Babylonia and Assyria, upon memorial tablets, prisms and cylinders of clay or alabaster, upon obelisks and steles, or upon the walls of palaces and temples.
