What Is It?
The YouTube video The Epic Of Gilgamesh The King Who Tried To Conquer Death – Soraya Field Fiorio by the YouTube channel TED-Ed.
Here is the description for this video:
Dive into the Epic of Gilgamesh, and follow the king of Uruk on a series of dangerous quests as he searches for immortality. — In 1849, in the ancient city of Nineveh in Iraq, archaeologists sifted through dusty remains, hoping to find records to prove that Bible stories were true. What they found instead was a 4,000-year-old story inscribed on crumbling clay tablets— a story that was so riveting, the first person to translate it started stripping from excitement. Soraya Field Fiorio tells the epic tale of Gilgamesh. Lesson by Soraya Field Fiorio, directed by Amir Houshang Moein.

It is good to see a video about The Epic Of Gilgamesh.
It is such an ancient story that possibly was used as partial inspiration for some of the major world religions today, and I did not hear of it until college, sadly.
