MessageToEagle.com – One of the most intriguing ancient documents representing Sumerian literature is the Sumerian King List, produced at the end of the third millennium BC (most probably during the reign of the third dynasty of Ur).
According to Zecharia Sitchin, the Sumerian King List describes the first settlements of the Anunnaki on Earth and lists the kingships of the first Anunnaki leaders before the Deluge. The list is an important chronographic document from ancient Mesopotamia that records the sequence of the leaders and the lengths of their reigns.
The first considerable fragment of the Sumerian King List was published in 1906. It was found in the temple library of Nippur at the turn of the century. Since that date, more than 15 different fragments and at least one fairly complete list have been found and published.
