The Peabody Museum of Natural History at Yale University was founded in 1866 and is among the oldest, largest, and most prolific university natural history museums in the world. The Peabody's Babylonian Collection was founded in 1911 and includes cuneiform tablets, cylinder seals, statues and other artefacts, some of which date back to 3500 BC. Among its highlights are tablets of the Epic of Gilgamesh, the world’s oldest recipes, magic spells and mathematical texts.
The Peabody wanted to organize a new exhibition, "Ancient Mesopotamia Speaks", with a selection of 150 artefacts from their Babylonian Collection. For this purpose, a space was refurbished where we installed free standing and recessed wall cases.
