Irving Finkel: The Ark Before Noah: A Great Adventure & Book Signing.
Irving Finkel Assistant Keeper, The Department of the Middle East, The British Museum. This talk, illustrated by a PowerPoint, will describe what befell the speaker after one quite remarkable cuneiform tablet was brought for examination to the British Museum in London.
