ďAs the bronze age progressed, the incidence of war and the victims of war increased incalculably, until the time when the barbarism of Assyria extinguished what was left of the civilisation of Mesopotamia."
--- The second part of this sentence sounds to me like a question, but there is no question mark at the end. Am I right? Is it a question, or a statement?
Or maybe it just says: Before the barbarism of the Assyrians disappeared there was not much left of the civilization of Mesopotamia.
