Early Dynastic I Period


Early Dynastic I refers to the period immediately following the end of the Late Uruk or Jemdet-Nasr Period (c. 2900).  The method of dividing the overall Early Dynastic Period into three or four parts is a somewhat archaic way of dating things, but continues to be used by archaeologists and scholars.  Most of these very early documents are receipts and contracts.
