Geographically the Middle East sits between Western Asia and extends to areas of Northern Africa and Egypt. The Middle East is considered to be the cradle of civilization. The earliest human settlements in the Middle East are said to have formed around 3500 BC. Civilizations established by the Sumerians and Akkadians in Mesopotamia all flourished in this region. The murals, statues, pottery and jewelry made during this period of history can be found in museums all over the world. One of the most prominent city-states in Mesopotamia was Sumner. According to history Sumner is where the first written language was developed. During this time period the High Priestess of Inanna became the first ever known author in history. Eventually society began to spread during this time period and civilizations began to pop up in the Nile valley of Egypt. Many jewelry making techniques still used today were developed in Egypt from 2686 to 1069 BC. One of the most famous and renowned ancient empires was the Byzantine empire. Ancient Byzantine pottery and glass jewelry still influences modern day jewelry making today!
