I'm doing a quick dive into three ancient empires - Assyria, Babylon, and Persia.

My Thoughts

Super interesting. It’s such a neat time to be alive. Excavations in the past 150+ years have unearthed tablets, artifacts, and artwork that have brought new understanding about the ancient empire of Assyria. This book contains an overall history of Assyria, its kings, and its interactions with neighboring groups. It also looks at the biblical material about Assyria and contrasts that to what we’ve recently learned. The devastating last chapter is about the purposeful destruction of antiquities brought about by ISIS during our lifetime.
