Visit: Babylon Exhibition at the British Museum
The ancient city of Babylon is legendary, the Hanging
Gardens, the Tower of Babel and the Babylonian Captivity all captivate us.
Here at the British Museum are some of the greatest artefacts of that
era collected from all over the world, among them the Ishtar Gate and
Processional Way, cuneiform scripts on clay tablets and the newly excavated
Stella Nabonidus from Saudi Arabia. The exhibition also takes us through the
Middle Ages to Modern times in todayβs Iraq.
