Andrew George, Professor of Babylonian, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London

The Epic of Gilgamesh is a 4,000-year-old Mesopotamian poem about a hero who embarks on an arduous quest to find the secret of immortality. Preserved on clay tablets in cuneiform script, it is generally considered to be the earliest great work of literature to survive from the ancient world. In this illustrated lecture, Andrew George, author of a prize-winning translation of the Epic of Gilgamesh, explores four themes related to this Babylonian masterpiece: the archaeology of the poem’s recovery, the reconstruction of its text, the story it tells, and its messages about life and death.

Presented in collaboration with the Departments of Near Eastern Languages & Civilizations and Comparative Literature, with the support of the Provostial Fund for the Arts and Humanities, Harvard University

  1. I read the epic of Gilgamesh along time ago and what was very interesting about the story is the part about the king being friends with the wild man .I was raking ancient art history at the time and in school we were right at the transition from Paleolithic. To the Neolithic period ,so the story sort of struck me that this was what was occurring in the story of Gilgamesh. The king represented the Neolithic with the ziggurat and temple and settled life in one place and his friend was still a hunter gather, representing the Paleolithic. But they still were friends.infact the king gave up everything to go searching for his wild man friend in an ark. But that's what struck me as very interesting and rare..

  2. One comment about the same subject was by a Kurdish speaking person, they understood the names : Gilgamesh, actually Bilgamesh
    means the one who does not wear the animal skin (Bil: without, Gamesh: animal skin) ie civilized, in fact Enkidu probably has a root in Yangid in Arabic, which means to save. So Enkidu was sent to save the people. Gamesh or Gmash in Arabic means cloth

  3. The brilliance of the ancients wonderfully brought to life by a brilliant modern scholar … marvelous !!

  4. Humbaba I have come to bargain.

  5. I hope you do something better with your life than mull over this all the time.

  6. LOL, were not "gay lovers." There bond was the bond of brotherhood. It is not really implied in this poem anything homosexual. Nothing in the text describes a sexual element and completely misses the whole damn point. Enkidu represents the uncivilized while Gilgamesh represents what was considered cultured. It was about the ability for the two to be of equal importance and form mutually supporting bonds, but also plays into the fact the king was living irresponsibly, went on a foos quest and finally had to take responsibility as a king and as a civilized human being.I have had friends i was really close too without the slightest gay urge as has most people, even gay people. To impose this kind of wish fulfillment, justification or whatever it is, hardly seems to me as anything schalrly but more of someone reading in more than was ever there.

  7. The Yews (a.k.a. jews) are NOT of Shem therefore they CANNOT be described as semite. When they use the term "anti-sem-ite" they are using it FALSELY claiming to be of Shem.

  8. Since this story was likely written about 4000 years ago, Gilgamesh may have been contemporary with the end of the ice age flooding, if not possibly before.

  9. What a fantastic lecture. Thanks for upload.

  10. Imagine future generations excavating 50 shades of gray and hailing it as some masterpiece xD

  11. Lecture starts at 3:54.
    12:00 Is it the first temper tantrum by a rude daughter?

  12. Man what is wrong w utube. I tried to find something happy but I get same ol nonsense.

  13. I used to get annoyed at commentators. But not now. All this nonsense. God bless you all new

  14. the arc….so someone did some borrowing to write a book.

  15. life is what life is then its no more.

  16. enjoy your life . appreciate whats about you. spend time with those who love u and those u love. worry not about the end for it will come on its own . be at peace with the world , for life is short, the cycle of things goes on

  17. Shame he tried to slip the Communism in at the end …..

  18. He died yesterday and lives tomorrow in the desert, on the tundra, on city streets, shores, mountains and plains.

  19. Great treatment on Gilgamesh. Wish he would do something like this on "The Great Fatted Bull", the worlds first political satire and murder mystery, Sumerian and written about 5,000 years ago… older than the Babyleon writtings 😁 really hilarious as well as instructional. Gilgamesh was first in Sumer, then copied by the later nations, in my understanding.

  20. Not gonna lie, young Gilgamesh had some serious conviction. Dude denied no-strings-attached sex to a hoe… Most dudes would've taken her up on the offer. This story should be taught to young men at school imo.

  21. 14:57? Now Enkidu was Gilgamesh lover, Gilgamesh love Enkidu? really? I didn't know Gilgamesh was Gay?

  22. bravo. many thanks for your lecture and contributions in this beautiful translation.

  23. What a bunch a bullshyt!

    In my Fomenko voice🤡🤣😂🤣

  24. Wow unbelievable
    1St speach was good and historically accurate
    2nd one was more a joke
    3rd the women is throwing the old testament in the room???
    A big part (one of a lot) is a myth which was taken out the Gilgamesh epos.
    So please!
    Especially the so called scholars should take a look at the bibliotec which was found, the Babylonian especially where real writer and pencilpusher.
    A lot of the information in it show a different picture then especially the old testament…
    Very interesting

  25. Illuminati wants us to believe that there is E.T. who created us needing gold and 1 day they will come back to take their place. illuminati's will make our lives hard to where we call for our masters. Then Illuminati's will show up and tell us they are the descendants of Annunaki and they will rule us rightfully. They reason why they need gold is because to prevent some country to back their money with gold. That can threaten the world cash reserve which is USA Illuminati. If ever world ash reserve is backed by gold they will loose power unless they have all the gold or least majority of them. If they get all the gold they can freely print cash without any worry to make inflations and deflations. This is why USA and England is promoting Annunaki. Any place where England and USA is present, they stand side by side. Their Flags are often found displayed next to each other all the time. All the archeologists, big museums all the major media is all owned by England and USA. Even educational departments and UNISCO and history organizations. If you ever believe Annunaki, you are ready for you''re Illuminati masters to rule over you.

  26. "the firy bull" i feel so sad when expert dont understand this lines..

  27. omg!
    ishtar,or inanna,was not a prostitute!
    she was the grandaughter of enlil,first born in wedlock*to anu.
    jeez…do yur resesrch!

  28. she asked him to have sex,he replied,that would be unwise because she would only tire if him,like her other lovers…
    this must b the jewish version,lol
    *(im half jewish,but i can still research transcriptions by scholars
    ..gilgamesh was searching,as did anthony later for the yryth of his bloodline,fascinating story,but yud b better 2 read the correct transcriptions….blessings

  29. Embababa wasn't a 🌲 tree monster- he's the Giant who lived up high in the 🌲 & had been appointed by Enlil [Enkis half brother] to be watchman over the great 🌲's of the forests. This epic tale is my favorite! As it unfolds it takes Gilgamesh on a 3 day journey to reach this Giants abode in the sky. [Jack nBeanstalk]? As a mother- I recommend every child be read this amazing . . . epic tale of the most amazing relationship- one can't help but fall in love with 💓 Gilgamesh.

  30. That's funny, in the story of "Polyidus", a snake regurgitates a plant into it's partner that was killed and brings it back to life.

  31. I need to find a boyfriend who's into this kind of stuff,,,,,58-70 y.o…..las vegas area…!! Seriously do. LOL

  32. about 1:11:00 my mind was sated (satiated?) with the analysis of one particular aspect of this story.
    poor humbaba. he was just on guard duty doing his environmental warrior best against two demi gods…
    always felt bad for him. i also always thought of him in more animalistic terms. like he was a triceratops or stegosaurus type creature. guess i have to read again.

  33. I'm now confident I could give a lecture at Harvard

  34. This is what I.heard at 00:32

    “Eternal values of love and friendship, porridge, fear and acceptance of death”

  35. The Gilgamesh story is telling the fall of Man. The tyrant Gilgamesh will never be granted immortality because he was a tyrant. The ways of the city causes mortality. Before the Flood, man had a sort of immortality, in which one man escaped the Wrath of the Gods. In the Bible Jesus says those who believe in him will never die. It doesn't say they will die and go to heaven. But we are indoctrinated by civilization. We may never achieve immortality as long as we are indoctrinated by the tree of knowledge. We are Mortals because we are taught we are Mortals. You are what you believe. But you are also what you eat. In Enkidu's world, there is a immortal reincarnation. The man eats the chicken and the man becomes the chicken. The lion eats the man and the lion becomes a man. Not all men have tasted death. Enoch walked with God and he was not for God took him to heaven. The Book of Mormon talks about several people who never died. Jesus said when he returns, the dead will be raised and the living will not die. But we rejected his teaching because we would rather listen to books written by tyrant King Gilgamesh. Also in the Bible the two witnesses are raised from the dead and taken alive into heaven.

  36. Didn't "tyrant" mean something different back in the day?The Greeks had tyrants who were just rulers.

  37. Wouldn’t it blow Gilgamesh’s mind to think that 4000 years in his future, I am hearing what was written on clay tablets about his life on a different sort of tablet, my iPad. Makes me wonder how life will be 4000 years from now.

  38. I'm Chaldean, which is Babylonian. Gilgamesh was something my dad and his parents and so on all were told of the Gilgamesh story, there are some parts not in text that my dad told me saying it's been told like that since God knows when… anyways, long story short, this is a part of my cultural history. Great post!

  39. But death is not an empty place 🙄 although I know where you're coming from😬

  40. Uruk in my language means to village. Ur is village in my Tamil language.

  41. Who else is watching this in 2000 BC?

  42. sumerians were not semitic people.

  43. The Epic of Gilgamesh is not the origin of the original story of the origin of the story of Noah. It is of its day, what could be compared today to the Islamic twist of the books of the Bible. Noah was mortal. It is a curious suggestion to imagine that even if it were true., after destroying all of the living creatures of the world by flood for no apparent reason, that such nasty 'gods' would not know what to do with a single survivor so they'd decide to make him immortal. The lecturer himself shows how these fables are put together.. By a couple of 'experts' without redress, which are then put into the mainstream to be taught as fact for the next hundreds of years until a truth turns up and puts the proverbial cat amongst the pigeons. Being 'experts' They do present a 'seemingly' true narrative to what are essentially unproven story's of history written by those who, as the carnal minds of men for the purpose of their rule and domination of other men, would have it to be seen to be so, in their favour Thus, as history has shown time and again, has happened over and over whereby history has been written to suit the supposed virtues of the victors by the victors over the demonized vanquished. Gilgamesh it seems was a Cananite.. And of the same Nation of Nimrod who is certainly of Nephilim blood and was Giborine at the time of his demise and on his way to being an even greater giant.

  44. Peters remarks are boring in depressing and a perfect example of over thinking .

  45. WHY IS SHOWING PICTURES OF EUROPEANS WHEN WE KNOW IT WAS A KUSHITE( Afrikan) CIVILIZATION AND CULTURE 🤷🏿‍♂️

  46. I think gilganesh is 26 ft tall, the way he hold the lion like a cat.

  47. Sounds like Yankee Doodle Dandy or Gilligan's Island. If the planet or asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter had a major cataclysm that became the asteroid belt, the fragments that remain wouldn't be 2 to 4 or 8 million years old, but that's quite a span of time if humans once journeyed from that rocky planet, that Mars was habitable in that time, and if the asteroid belt was a planet large enough in the so called goldilocks zone, that interplanetary civilizations could have existed at one time in human evolution in this solar system, its destruction by cataclysm or destruction by technological failure of intelligence of the species. That earth could have been seen as a planet that could sustain the species as their planet was failing with a declining civilization, thus the parallel of our current civilizations ambitions to return to the stars, or planet of origin.

  48. WOW…. What a waste of my time…. so much talk, and nothing really was said.
    Dumb poems only.

  49. There is absolutely no evidence that explicitly shows that Gilgamesh & Enkidu were homosexual. This is PSEUDO-ARCHEOLOGY that is being presented to you.

  50. @Andrew George ::There is a reference to the Seven Sages in your slides. Who were they? Indus Valley Vedic literature also talks about Seven Sages called Sapt (seven) Rishis (researchers). They have detailed names & history of all seven of them.
    ::Your slides also talk about 'look at the "Foundation" twice in two couplets back to back. What is this Foundation of city being asked to 'look at' ? BTW Majority of Ancient civilizations sites across the world are built on the Old 'Foundations' of seemingly earlier civilizations only identified as the 'Polygonal Masonary' civilization.
    @Peter Machinst
    :: The quest for Immortality – The Answer given by Utanapishti is that the city still lives, its immortal, as its made on the foundations of the old one, like cities after cities will keep our Way of Lives & Legends all immortal.

  53. Gilgom is Gorgom…yes

  54. These stories were born in the country of Aratta-Ararat-Armenia. Heavenly stories, the stories of the mountainous country Aratta-Armenia. Where civilization was born after the chaos. In Armenia, the heavenly seed is born, Orion Ara and their children and grandchildren. The ancient world which was created by the sight of the country of Armenia.

  58. When people hear about Sumerians we imediatly think about Annunakies….

  59. 17:15 Babylonian original? Turn dude off…. liar list him
    Historically Hebrew has all try evidence as the first of languages. Satan simply took Bible stories blended them and put next t his stories if giants from Genesis 6 . It's simple once u wrap head around Satan and his genetics he made Gilgamesh who is Nimrod into a giant …. Ya that why Gilgamesh was 2/3 god little g ……

  60. They aren't gods, they are planets, the solar system was different, Mars, Venus and Saturn were much closer and dominated our sky, there was some celestial disaster the earth got ruined worse than any disaster movie, imagine that movie 2012 but 30x worse! Humanity was almost made extincted and somehow the planets ended up where they are now.
    This is a good place to start… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7EAlTcZFwY&t=

  61. Very cool but the Thracian codex is the oldest written text ever found and no one talks about it.

  62. if there is a plant that produces a substance(s) that would elongate (rebuild might be a better term) the telomeres – perhaps in a selective and certainly in a non-carcinogenic way – then it should do what the story claims (as also the garden of Eden "lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live for ever:
    Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life." another parallel in the writings… I have heard some claims that the human mind is perfectly capable of holding a thousand years of input – however, the current state of genetic research into DNA editing is uncomfortably similar to snipping bits of a spider's web, where each segment is a working piece of the whole and just as reactive: madness.

  63. This person mix lies over this is story !

  64. This is what i thought internet is all abut all those years ago when i bought my first dial-up modem…thank you for the upload..

  65. This and much more along these lines must get out. It just simply adds up, and is repeatable as a fact. Unless scripts, art, etc. Have been faked? Could they build huge sites just to fool us? I don't rule anything out. But this school of thought is encouraging.

  66. We don't know what human history is, but for certain Gilgamesh is just a poem. "There were giants in those days…" Genesis 6.

  67. who says this is a poem and not an actual account of occurence
    arrogant academia fuktards
    fuck you harvard retard

  68. Awesome stuff… Loved his dry humour too. I especially enjoyed as he read in the tongue of those ancient languages.

  69. Gilgamesh=king nimrod?

  70. Wait , shouldnt it be Inana rather than Ishtar, Ishtar is Akkadian/Babylonian rather than Sumerian.

  71. His voice at 33:10
    Great lecture really interesting and entertaining.

  72. Boring mainstream lecture/interpretation. Keep an open mind and be skeptical of the translations of this story. Healthy skepticism.

  73. I think the conclusion that the stanzas of Uruk's expanse represent human life is a bit far-fetched. When I read them, I immediately thought that it was a way of validating the story and connecting it to reality. Presumably, those who read the story themselves could see Uruk's walls and see everything great that Gilgamesh had done with their own eyes and thus leave no doubt about the reality of the history.

  74. SO the 'worker' is the Islam on their faces ass too sky. Thanks for the info

  75. A really cool History of Iraq Iran and no jewish at that time – ah I see now. Before ..

  76. Man, if these guys spent this much time reading the Bible they could learn something useful.

  77. All of this is symbolically referring to the 4 seasons and its impact on human life and the wisdom we accumulate in the process. The more wisdom one obtain the closer to immortality he gets. The serpent sheds its skin in order to put off the old and take on the new.

  78. Why do academics just ignore the world mountain? Thank goodness we have people like David Talbott in the world.

  79. I'm so stoned, had to watch this twice

  80. Anyone know what plant he plucked from the ocean to make him young again…

  81. Look this is a really long shot but maybe someone will know the answer to this:
    Lobsters are the only organism I am aware of that are fucntionally immune to death from old age due to an enzyme which prevents deterioration of their DNA when their cells split. The plant Gilgamesh picked with rejuvenating properties came from the sea. I know lobsters are omnivorous, but they don't eat just any plant life. Does anyone know what specific plants Lobsters will eat in the wild?

  82. Incredible lecture. Bravo

  83. not story, it is the history.

  84. I really want to here the story, but his enthusiasm is so dry. Would love to hear this from Graham Hancock, or someone with the flare for story telling like NDT, or Cox.

  85. What a fascinating lecture!! I really enjoyed it, thank you for sharing it!!!
    Cheers

  86. Harvard Semitic Museum? Do we get a harvard Aryan Museum? Huh Jewish Overlords?

  87. FAKE NEWS, ya'll fuckers can't translate shit, if these tablets are even real to begin with…
