The Anunnaki are a group of deities who appear in the mythological traditions of the ancient Sumerians, Akkadians, Assyrians, and Babylonians.

These advance beings are told to have come to Earth, arriving in flying ships form the stars and displaying technology beyond modern standards. As a result they were worshipped as Gods.

Descriptions of how many Anunnaki there were and what role they fulfilled are inconsistent and often contradictory.

In the earliest Sumerian writings about them, which come from the Post-Akkadian period, the Anunnaki are the most powerful deities in the pantheon, descendants of An and Ki, the God of the heavens and the Goddess of earth, and their primary function is to decree the fate of Sumerians.
