The Gilgamesh epic project for young people runs from May 2015 to October 2016. It is organised by the Enheduanna Society and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the British Museum and the British Institute for the Study of Iraq.

The project's main digital outcome will be a 21st-century retelling of the ancient Gilgamesh epic in words, images and music composed by young people.
