Does not the biblical account tell us that Cain, when exiled from Eden, went "east" to the land of Nod and built a city? We are also told that he named his city after his firstborn son, Enoch. Ancient linguistics have shown that the city of Uruk, in Iraq, is the same word as Enoch, etymologically
Perhaps the city that Cain built gives us some strong evidence of where he came from... to the west.
