Babylon – an Exhibition at the British Museum

[scribd id=82672515 key=key-1kosesvaa8cfmtq263a4 mode=list]

Babylon was one of the greatest cities in the ancient world, widely regarded as ‘the cradle of civilisation‘. The exhibition at the British Museum explored the treasures of this city during the reign of King Nebuchadnezzar II. The strong, bold and unique art of the ancient Sumerian / Babylonian culture never fails to impress me. I have some photos somewhere of the exhibition but they are on my Blackberry but the connection thingy isn’t working – when I get around to sorting it out, I’ll add them to this post.
