Description - The Conquest of Assyria by Mogens Trolle Larsen

The Conquest of Assyria vividly recounts the adventures of a group of rather uncoventional people who excavated the great cities and palaces of the Ancient Near East. Charting the early discoveries, this archaeological adventure is told in a series of close portraits of those involved. The lives and achievements of these people offer an unparalleled view of the intellectual and scientific establishment of the High Victorian period and the way in which the new discoveries were received. Based on substantial amounts of new research including the Layard papers and private correspondence, this volume evokes the spirit of the age in an extremely lively and highly readable way.
