Sumer (Akkadian Šumeru; Sumerian Kiengir) is the name of a historical region of southern Mesopotamia, now modern-day southern Iraq. It is home to one of the world’s earliest civilizations and one of the places where writing was first developed. Eridu, Girsu, Lagash, Shuruppak, Umma, Ur, and Uruk are among its most well-known urban centers.
