Other Ancient Calendars When did ancient months start? In the eighth century B.C.E., civilizations all over the world either discarded or modified their old 360 day calendars. The 360 day calendars had been in use for the greater part of a millennium. In many places, month lengths immediately after that change were not fixed, but were based instead upon observation of the sky. Priest-astronomers were assigned the duty of declaring when a new month began – it was usually said to have started at the first sighting of a new moon. Month length at that time was simply the number of days that passed from one new lunar crescent to the next. During those years in Rome, for example, a Pontifex (priest) observed the sky and announced a new moon and therefore the new month to the king. This practice of starting a month at the first sighting of a new moon was observed not only by Romans but by Celts and Germans in Europe and by Babylonians and Hebrews in the Lavant. When was the ancient new year? Babylonian calendar Overview

Sumérien Le sumérien (en sumérien « 𒅴𒂠 » ; translittération : EME.ĜIR15) est une langue morte qui était parlée dans l'Antiquité en Basse Mésopotamie. Elle est ainsi la langue parlée à Sumer aux IVe et IIIe millénaires av. J. Le sumérien semble être la plus ancienne langue écrite connue, sous une forme d'écriture appelée le cunéiforme, voire la plus ancienne langue connue[5]. L'akkadien a progressivement remplacé le sumérien comme langue parlée autour du XXe siècle av. Terminologie[modifier | modifier le code] Redécouverte[modifier | modifier le code] La redécouverte de la langue sumérienne se produit dans le contexte de redécouverte et de la traduction des inscriptions cunéiformes à partir de la première moitié du XIXe siècle. Il est rapidement établi qu'il s'agit d'une langue agglutinante, ce qui fait qu'on la range d'abord dans la catégorie des langues « touraniennes » ou « scythiques », celles qui sont caractérisées de nos jours comme « ouralo-altaïques ».

Native American People (First Nations and American Indian Cultures) Biographical Dictionary - S9.com Egyptian calendar The ancient civil Egyptian calendar had a year that was 365 1/4 days long. The year consisted of 12 months of 30 days each, plus five extra days (epagomenae, from Greek ἐπαγόμεναι) at the end of the year. The months were divided into three weeks (decans) of ten days each. Because the ancient Egyptian year was almost a quarter of a day shorter than the solar year and stellar events therefore "wandered" through the calendar, it has been referred to as the annus vagus, or "wandering year". Based on his understanding of the Palermo Stone, Alexander Scharff believed that the Old Kingdom period observed a year with 320 days.[1] Early uses[edit] A tablet from the reign of First Dynasty King Djer (c. 3000 BC) was conjectured by early Egyptologists to indicate that the Egyptians had already established a link between the heliacal rising of Sirius (Egyptian Sopdet, Greek Σείριος Seirios) and the beginning of the year.

Sumerian Mythology: Introduction Sacred Texts Ancient Near East Index Previous Next p. 1 The study of Sumerian culture introduced by the present volume, Sumerian Mythology, is to be based largely on Sumerian literary sources; it will consist of the formulation of the spiritual and religious concepts of the Sumerians, together with the reconstructed text and translation of the Sumerian literary compositions in which these concepts are revealed. The decipherment of Sumerian differed from that of Accadian 3 and Egyptian in one significant detail, a detail p. 2 which proved to be one of the factors in hampering the progress of Sumerology to no inconsiderable extent. Historically, the decipherment of Sumerian resulted from that of Accadian, which in turn followed the decipherment of cuneiform Persian. p. 3 [paragraph continues] Achaemenid proper names as handed down in Biblical and classical literature, the German scholar, Grotefend, succeeded in deciphering a large part of the Persian version of the inscriptions. p. 4 p. 5 p. 6

Sumer Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Situation du Pays de Sumer Ayant été complètement oubliée après les débuts de notre ère, la civilisation de Sumer a été redécouverte durant la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle grâce aux fouilles de sites archéologiques du Sud mésopotamien, dont l'exploration s'est poursuivie par la suite, jusqu'à connaître un arrêt en raison des troubles politiques affectant l'Irak à partir des années 1990. En plus des redécouvertes architecturales et artistiques qui furent à plusieurs reprises remarquables, les fouilles ont permis la découverte de dizaines de milliers de tablettes inscrites en écriture cunéiforme, qui est la plus ancienne documentation écrite connue avec celle de l’Égypte antique. Sumer est donc l'une des plus anciennes civilisations historiques connues, ayant participé à la mise au point de ce système d'écriture durant les derniers siècles du IVe millénaire av.
