New Chapter of Gilgamesh Epic Found

     A cuneiform tablet with a previously unknown portion of the Epic of Gilgamesh has been identified. The tablet dates (possibly) to the Neo-Babylonian Period and contains part of the scene where Enkidu and Gilgamesh hunt down and kill Humbaba. An article that goes into more detail can be found here.
