9 – Sargon and the Akkadians


The world’s first empire (debatable) is also the name of my new shoegazer EDM band! (also debatable)

Akkadian Empire
This map of the Akkadian Empire is probably closer to what was actually controlled.
Family tree of Sargon
The poems of Enheduanna, as well as numerous other Sumerian stories are all here, free of charge!
This author does a really nice and thorough job on the Akkadian emperors. Well worth the read!
