The Sumerian Period is a grouping of the Early Dynastic Periods which were divided by the Oriental Institute's excavations in the Diyala.  This term was used during Woolley's time to refer to this span of time.  It was preceded by the Jemdat Nasr Period and followed by the Akkadian Period.  During this period, Kingship alternated between a number of competing dynasties, traditionally including Kish, Uruk, and Ur.
