Twenty-five cuneiform tablets from the ancient Mesopotamian school environment called eduba (literally, "house of tablets") and includes examples ranging from simple sign exercises to advanced Sumerian literary exercises. The majority of the texts come from the Old Babylonian period, which began after the fall of the Third Dynasty of Ur (ca. 2000 BCE) and continued until the Hittites conquered Babylon in 1595 BCE.
The collection of 25 cuneiform tablets were donated in 2007 by an anonymous donor who wished to name the collection after Cumberland Clark.
