Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilization, was a hot spot of human activity five thousand years ago.
Mesopotamian mythology is the collective name given to Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian, and Babylonian mythologies from parts of the fertile crescent, the land between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in Iraq.
This mythology was also influenced by other surrounding cultures, including the Hittites and the Phoenicians. Given this diverse background, some areas of Mesopotamian myth are inconsistent, as some groups and tribes held to some of their original beliefs, while incorporating some of others.
