Here is a link to the first 19 volumes of BBR, courtesy of the Ancient World Online blog (Chuck Jones). I *think* you can download the articles for the first 18 issues, while issue 19 is not freely available.
This is a quality academic journal. You should take the time to comb through the issues.
Thanks for the connection! I downloaded 92 of them! 🙂
I have read information from several of your websites, Go Madison! I’m from Wisconsin, I found a strange message, I’m not crazy, but how I came about it sounds crazy! Anyway am I accurate to assume you can translate ancient Sumerian? I personally tried myself online in many many languages, it didn’t seem to fit any so I assumed it was gibberish, until I decided to try Sumerian, it started me when all the words fit something in the available online dictionary. Long story short, what do you think? It was audible so I broken it into sounds as syllables “Eh Sha Ree gile Ek Shu ma all” Am I imagining the similarities to this ancient language? Is this gibberish? If not am I correct in a rough translation of the foremost of the heavens, the celestial body’s bright enough for all to see…? Can you help me?
I have no idea what “tried myself online” means (for starters).
Hahaha, ok I really thought I had explained it pretty well at least that in which you need to answer the questions. I apologize, when I heard it under a very strange occurrence I wrote it down thinking it was German. I tried matching the sounds to similar languages when my results yielded no possible results, in several online translators, trying other possible spelling to get the same sounds. I’ve studied Spanish, French, &German so I’m aware of vowel changes. I took weeks of my spare time because what happened was so peculiar that it sparked my curiosity! I was ready to give in to the thought of it being gibberish when I found an online dictionary for Sumerian translation. To me, not being a historian it seems to match the language well! I wondered if it was a latent retained memory, I did have quite a photographic memory before I became ill and the medication represses it. Honestly, I’m having trouble letting go of my curiosity of where it could have come from, or why I heard it that day. I had seen the Fourth kind a while back, but I reviewed the movie and didn’t hear anything like that there. I was hoping you could help me put this to bed or tell me if it warrants my curiosity. When I wrote you before I copied from incomplete notes though, it sounded like 4 words “En sharigle Akun shma ull (all)”. This one sentence has been on my mind since I woke to the loud beeping for an emergency broadcast, but heard that instead of the usually automated “this is a test” or whatever. I know it’s strange, I could had been dreaming, but I really felt aware and couldn’t fall back to sleep. Seriously, I’m trying to logically go about finding out what it was. Please I’m a college graduate, and although I believe there will always be mysteries to life we can’t explain, I’m no crack pot that is obsessed over this either.
