I came across an interesting video today, about 12 minutes long, on the archaeology of Eden.

I have read material on this topic before from a Facebook acquaintance who is involved in Christian apologetics. The theory posited in this video and by my acquaintance (among others) holds that Eden was destroyed by a flood that covered a particular region, including parts of Mesopotamia, but not the whole world – although it was part of a bigger geological event that has had worldwide implications.

The reader may find the following posts to be useful as starting points in considering this reading of Genesis.
