Mesopotamia and Ancient Near East

You will be surprised to learn of the similarities between the beginning of civilization and modern day. One of the first people to use writing, the Mesopotamians, used rolling stamps to press their signatures into clay. We have some of those cylinder seals on exhibit, in addition to religious ceramics, weapons, coins, and other items from the Ancient Near East.
