"The present manuscript publishes 145 new cuneiform tablets from ancient Babylonia, from a time that scholars call the Ur III period (ca, 2110-2003 BCE)--the heyday of Sumerian civilization. Based on month names and other evidence, we know they are from a site near the ancient city of Nippur (modern Nuffar), the religious capital of Babylonia and an important political center for the kings of the Ur III dynasty. With a few possible exceptions, they appear to stem from the archive of a figure named Aradmu."--Preface.
