The Foundings begins with the start of written history in Uruk, the capital of Sumer. Ur-man-co, second son of King Gilgamesh, and his servant, Micah, from Ethiopia, learn basic lessons, finally serving in the army. They travel to unknown areas by land and sea, winning many skirmishes. The need for tin sends them around Africa where their ship gets blown off course, finally landing at the mouth of the Amazon River. They follow the river to its headwaters where they ultimately reach what is now Peru and Bolivia to establish the beginning of a Middle Eastern culture. The Foundings answers many questions: Why ancient porcelain pot shards have been found along the Amazon. Why there are ancient tiles in Marajo Island. How the city, and now Republic, of Djibouti got its name. Why a drinking font, known as the 'Fuente Magna', with cuneiform instructions for planting grain, happened to be found near Lake Titicaca. And, why a delicate silver spoon with a sharp pointed end was found in the burial possessions of an Incan princess.
