The Babylonian Story of the Deluge and the Epic of Gilgamish

This is the earliest known telling of the great flood and pre-dates any Christian reference to the flood (Noah) by thousands of years.

Publication Date: 1929
Whilst the workmen were clearing out the Chamber of the Lion Hunt they came across several heaps of inscribed baked clay tablets of "all shapes and sizes," which resembled in general appearance the tablets that Layard had found in the South West Palace the year before. There were no remains with them, or near them, that suggested they had been arranged systematically and stored in the Chamber of the Lion Hunt, and it seems as if they had been brought there from another place and thrown down hastily, for nearly all of them were broken into small pieces.
