A newly translated clay tablet seems to describe the building of a giant boat into which animals would be "led two by two".
The tablet was brought to Irving Finkel, an assistant keeper at the British Museum, by a man whose father had acquired it in the Middle East after the end of the Second World War. The tablet tells of a large flood and the building of a huge boat that protected people and animals from the flood.
The tablet has just gone on display in the British Museum.
