British Museum - Curators’ Corner: Irving Finkel

"Irving Finkel has possibly the coolest job in the world – he’s curator of cuneiform at the British Museum. Since 1979 he’s been trawling the Museum’s 130,000 clay tablets for clues about life in ancient Mesopotamia. In this film, he tells us about a particular tablet he found that contains the rules of a board game – a board game that he’s been obsessed with since childhood."
