Reconstruction of Sumer

In the framework of the direction of the Bronze Age, we present the first (both ours in this direction, and in principle) reconstruction of the costume of Ancient Mesopotamia, and specifically Sumer. This is a generalized image of a dignitary from a large nome in the period of -XXII-XXI centuries BC. Although a similar fashion for a Sumerian costume with a clear Akkadian influence could have existed before, as well as these features persisted until the middle of the first millennium BC.

Plans to continue this direction. We already have a costume in Nordic bronze in the piggy bank (Burial of Trindhoj - XIV century BC, Denmark), as well as costumes of Sintashta culture in conjunction with the center for historical projects of Archeos.
