The Assyrian collection of the British Museum is one of the best in the world. This guide to the collection, and to the Assyrian world in general, was first published in 1995 and is now available again. The famous carved stone reliefs from the Assyrian palaces at Nimrud and Nineveh, along with cuneiform clay tablets and an array of small finds, provide the basis for this thematic discussion.
