1) YouTuber Jason Evers Herbert rightfully points out that I should have mentioned Sir Austen Henry Layard as one of the Assyriologists who contributed to the discovery of the Gilgamesh tablets. Layard began the excavations at the site, but because digs of this nature take so long, he departed back to England and his assistant (Hormundz Rasam, mentioned in the video) eventually discovered the tablets. While I’m at it, I should also mention George Smith, the man who first translated the tablets.
