King Ashurbanipal’s reign, from 669BC to c 631BC, marked the apogee of the Assyrian empire, which stretched from the shores of the eastern Mediterranean to western Iran. His death, however, remains shrouded in mystery. The British Museum’s exhibition, ‘I am Ashurbanipal: King of the World, King of Assyria’, tells his story through its collection of Assyrian treasures, augmented by some rare loans.

This private view (with two entry times for two small groups) begins with a short introductory talk by one of the curators and allows time to explore at leisure before the museum opens to the public.
