The author first surveys the available options for reading Genesis 11:1-9: an ahistorical primaeval event, an agnostic historical event, or a known historical event. He then provides a reading of this passage as a known historical event, together with the textual and archaeological evidence considered. He identifies this event as the demise and dispersion of the last great Sumerian dynasty centred at Ur.
