The present work is devoted to the achievements and grandeur of the civilisation that sprang up in this part of the world. There are many indications of the dexterity and creativeness of the peoples who inhabited this land throughout the past 100,000 years. They originated fine art work, craftsmanship and technical inventions; they dug canals and devised irrigation systems; they built soaring towers and prosperous cities. They laid the solid foundations for a flourishing world civilisation. [Introduction].
