Discovering Gilgamesh: Geology, narrative and the historical sublime in Victorian culture

A new book, Discovering Gilgamesh: Geology, Narrative and the Historical Sublime in Victorian Culture is now available on Manchester Scholarship Online. Adding to the Literature module, this book charts an astonishing find in the British Museum archives - a Bablyonian version of Noah's Flood, which predated the Genesis account by a millennium, and would later become known as The Epic of Gilgamesh.
