Digital Hammurabi is a public outreach/digital humanities project/creative brainchild of husband and wife Assyriology team, Megan Lewis and Joshua Bowen. Information on the whole team can be found here.

Our Mission

Our aim is to provide reliable, accurate information about the Ancient Near East (that's modern Iraq and the surrounding area!) in an entertaining and engaging fashion. 

If it's anything to do with ancient languages, history, or culture, then you are in the right place and we hope you enjoy what we do!



Megan Lewis (@digi_hammurabi) and Dr. Joshua Bowen (@DJHammurabi) are both trained Assyriologists, meaning that they know more about Ancient Mesopotamia than any one person truly should! Read more...


Digital Hammurabi on YouTube

From language classes and ancient literature, to live conferences, and interviews with scholars, the Digital Hammurabi YouTube channel contains information pertaining to all aspects of the ancient world, packaged for a non-specialist audience.

Updates weekly!


H.A.P.S. (Humans Against Poor Scholarship) started out as a summer grant program for Ph.D. students, and has since morphed into a fully-formed non-profit, dedicated to bringing academic research to a general audience, and increasing diversity in academia. More information can be found on the H.A.P.S. website, and we accept donations here!

This website and all affiliated social media accounts are unrelated to a project of the same name, based at the Johns Hopkins University during the early 2000s. The latter project is no longer active.
