NOTE: This installment was originally scheduled for July 13th.

This presentation will examine the most iconic of the ancient texts: the Solar System Seal. Ancient Alien theorists claim it depicts the solar system with the sun in the middle. We will discuss why this interpretation is impossible, and what it is actually depicting. We will also look at what is known about astronomy for the actual Sumerian period.
