Ancient Assyria exhibition


This 20 November 2017 video from the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden in the Netherlands is about their new exhibition. It is about Nineveh, the capital of the ancient Assyrian empire; which about 700 BC was the biggest city in the world.

25 March 2018 will be the last day of this exhibition.

A rare, 3,000-year-old sculpture sold for $31 million at Christie’s New York, shattering the previous world record for Assyrian art.
