Who was the world's first author?
This charming and informative video from TED-Ed brings Enheduanna to life. Education Soraya Field Fiorio beautifully celebrates the life and work of history's first author, Enheduanna. It also discusses her banishment and return. This video was directed by Laura White, narrated by Christina Greer, with music by Phil Brookes and it is part of TED-Ed. It has been posted for public viewing on YouTube.com.
The description of the video is: "From 4,300 years ago in ancient Sumer, the most powerful person in the city of Ur was banished to wander the vast desert. Her name was Enheduanna, and by the time of her exile, she had written forty-two hymns and three epic poems— and Sumer hadn't heard the last of her. Who was this woman, and why was she exiled?"
