Born in Victoria, Australia, Gordon has been an enthusiast and investigator of the writings found in the Epic of Gilgamesh for 20 years.
My search for the mysteries of life seemed to come to a unrewarded halt in my 60th year until I stumbled upon the Sumerians and the Epic of Gilgamesh. I now believe that the Epic takes precedents over the writings of the Torah, Old Testament and Koran and is the greatest story never fully explained by Academics and scholars.
