The 145 tablets presented in this volume are among a larger group of 302 tablets confiscated by U.S. customs, and which were being stored in a World Trade Center building when it was destroyed on 9/11.

The 145 tablets, which come from an unknown site near Nippur in southern Iraq, are the documents of a high official named Aradmu that detail routine agricultural operations, including receipts and grain loans. The group was repatriated to Iraq in late 2010, after the tablets were conserved and the author had completed his study.

The editions offered in this volume complete an incredible journey for the tablets and the stories they hold.
