Iraq Museum Will Come to the Web with Google

Eric Smidt, CEO of Google, met this week with representatives of the Museum National Iraqi to announce that its collection, including photographs of the American invasion in the country will reach the web next year.

“The history of civilization literally began to be written in this region and has been preserved in this museum,” said the executive, adding that he believes “there is no better use of time and resources to make this valuable material is available to millions of people all around the world”.

According to the newspaper USA Today, Google has already taken 14,000 photographs of the museum and its pieces, dating from the Stone Age to the Babylonian, Assyrian and Islamic eras. For those unaware, the region in what is now Iraq was once Mesopotamia, considered by historians as the cradle of civilization.
