I purchased this book. Ancient Egyptians and Their Neighbors: An Activity Guide by Marian Broida. We started learning about Mesopotamia today. The dress up ideas in the book were very easy to follow so all the kids got involved and enjoyed making their crowns and wraping their clothes.
The clothing is simply wrapped around the kids with the extra cloth draped over one shoulder. Men would wear the drape on the right and women would wear it on the left.
The ladies crowns have leaves dangling in the front and flowers standing straight up in the back. The were made of metal, silver and gold.
This crown style was first worn by an Assyrian Queen. It was a replica of the walls of Assyria. This crown design was since used in Greece and Europe. But the design originated from copying the Assyrian walls.
