IRVING FINKEL TALK: THE ARK BEFORE NOAH – THE STORY OF THE FLOOD

Irving Finkel Talk in Dulwich Picture Gallery Tuesday 13th January 7.30pm

In 1985 a member of the public walked into the British Museum with a tiny piece of ancient Babylonian clay. Irving Finkel,
Ark Before Noah
assistant keeper of the Ancient Mesopotamian Department in the British Museum realised immediately that it was of enormous significance. But it was not until 2009 that the tablet could be deciphered. Dating from 1850BC, the tablet contains the detailed instructions for building the Ark which it turns out was round like a coracle.

7pm for a 7.30pm start this event takes place in the Linbury Rooms of the Dulwich Picture Gallery. Tickets are £16 for non members and includes a glass of wine and a copy of The Ark Before Noah.
