The Ark before Noah


With Dr Irving Finkel, British Museum.

A cuneiform tablet brought to the Museum by a member of the public for identification has turned out to be a major treasure.

Dating to about 1750 BC, it contains part of the ancient Babylonian Story of the Flood, including detailed instructions for building the life-saving Ark.

Hear Dr Finkel reflect on this extraordinary document and the discoveries he has made that cast a new light on the Biblical story of Noah.

Copies of Irving’s The Ark before Noah will be on sale after the talk
