Audio Impressions

Here are links to stories 99% of blog readers would ignore: 

A professor from All Souls College, Oxford, reads a portion of Ancient Babylonian language.  He then explains how the language is reproduced.  The professor is quite entertaining. Running time: 3:36.

Another individual reads the Epilogue to the Code of Hammurabi in the original Akkadian language in 53 seconds.  This takes a much shorter time than one needs to read a provision of Congressional legislation.  I am sure the original Akkadian language makes more sense.

I found both links through Dr. Claude Mariottini's blog.
