    Phew. Glad to have this one finally finished. I'm finally off to Ireland next week for a much anticipated journey into the islands incredible history as well as insights into my own family history. Of course many videos will follow! Video wise there are so many ridiculously epic projects in the works. This one on Akkad is a mere taste of what is to come in terms of the Bronze Age world!

    These people were honestly primitive compared to the EgyptiansLook at the Great Pyramids or the Temple of Luxor and you will see a more sophisticated understanding of architecture and mathematics Read John Anthony West's 'Serpent in the Sky' for more on this topic

    Would love to watch this but had trouble with the volume being too loud with the music and too quiet with the narration.

    It's more of a "narrative history" than a "documentary". Effort is valued though!

    This is simply terrific. Your narration is powerful and entertaining. I loved your background music choices. It really moves the story along. Excellent! I can't begin to imagine the amount of work that goes into a work like this. Thank you!

    So, correct me if im wrong, Sargon et al appear to be ethno-nationalist fascists who initiated ethnic and cultural cleansing.

    Probably Mesopotamia was the nest of various advanced civilizations linked among them; actually certain hebrew lineages had their far roots in this area, like these amazing people, still existant:

    Hey man just some constructive feedback: the music going up and down after every sentence is jarring and not desirable. I did really like the documentary though

    history will rewrite itself because the first empire was not Mesopotamia.

    Hmmmmmm, first empire since the tramas and denial of the sudden end of the last Ice age 12'000 years ago ,, (or should I say God's anger for our wicked ways wiping out 25% of the population) ,, but it was a natural event a comet hit were the great lakes of North America now are, causing havoc and distraction all over the Planet,, most city's and towns on the coasts were submerged ,, and the other great empires pre Ice age have been brushed under the carpet Remember the Giants? well the smithsonian has covered that up for years,, ever wonder why? I could go on with evidence of these ancient pre flood civilizations but the way things are these days the real truth is now a conspiracy.

    I wanted to watch this documentary but the overpowering, distorted "music" put me off!!!! When will they learn ????

    The music is loud, unnecessary, and distracting.

    I just wish the volume wasn't at a set level. The music changes its sound between talking and not talking and I'm not sure why. Great documentary just I think leave the music at the same level throughout rather than going in and out constantly

    People enslaving people is ugly. It reminds me of the globalist push the whole world is currently undergoing. When will these people who have it all be satisfied? This is where the post-flood people went. Only about 600 miles from Ararat most likely from the spread after Babel. Some of them possibly knew Noah. I always doubt the dating models which invariably conflict.
