EDITORS COMMENTS
This aerial photograph showcases the ancient city of Nimrud, located in Nineveh Governorate, Iraq. The vertical perspective offers a unique view of the historic tell near Noomanea village, believed by local tradition to be the legendary city of "Nimrod". Once known as Calah or Kalhu, this remarkable site served as the capital of the mighty Assyrian Empire during the 9th and 8th centuries BCE. Its grandeur and significance are evident from its thriving existence between the 13th century BCE until its unfortunate destruction by enemies in the late 7th century BCE. Archaeologists have been tirelessly excavating this archaeological treasure trove since the mid-19th century, with notable contributions made by Austin Henry Layard. Their efforts have unearthed invaluable artifacts and provided insights into one of history's most influential civilizations. The print captures not only a moment frozen in time but also represents humanity's relentless pursuit to unravel our past. It serves as a testament to both our curiosity about ancient civilizations and our commitment to preserving their legacy for future generations. Historic England Archive has masterfully preserved this image, allowing us to marvel at Nimrud's architectural wonders from an entirely new perspective. Let it serve as a reminder that beneath these ancient ruins lie stories waiting to be discovered – tales that shape our understanding of human history and inspire us to continue exploring our world's rich cultural heritage.
