every time I see anything related to a certain historical figure I always hope her afterlife is good or if she's not an afterlife person I hope she's finally getting to REST, DAMMIT

yesterday someone asked me where the Sumerians went, which was such an odd question because civilizations don't go places, they change into other things, but I guess there's an idea that the Sumerians went somewhere?

Which they didn't, actually: Their language was still used for legal documents and religious texts even significantly later, toward the end of the Bronze Age, and the Sumerian people themselves seemed to have adopted Akkadian as a spoken language as that became more common. (The Akkadians, for that matter, adopted Sumerian religious traditions and holy sites, even while keeping their own.) This seems similar to people thinking ancient Egyptians and modern Egyptians are somehow different?

Groups don't disappear, they change.
