EDITORS COMMENTS
: Erbil, Iraq: A City of Timeless History and Enduring Resilience This aerial photograph captures the captivating image of Erbil, a city that has stood the test of time for over 6,000 years. Situated in the Erbil Governorate of Iraq, Erbil has served as a provincial center for various empires throughout history, each leaving its unique mark on the city's rich cultural tapestry. The heart of Erbil's ancient history is the citadel, which dominates the tell (ancient mound) in the center of the photograph. The citadel, a testament to the city's enduring resilience, has survived numerous invasions and empires, including the Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Parthians, Romans, Sassanians, Arabs, Mongols, and Ottomans. The citadel is surrounded by an Ottoman-era wall and ditch, which can be seen in the photograph, providing an added layer of protection for the city's inhabitants. This historic site, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a reminder of the city's rich and complex history. Erbil's ancient past is not its only claim to fame. The city is also known for its vibrant modern life, with a thriving business community, a diverse population, and a rich cultural scene. Despite the challenges it has faced throughout history, Erbil continues to be a thriving center of commerce, culture, and history in the Middle East. This aerial photograph, taken by Aerofi from Historic England, offers a unique perspective on the city's ancient core and its modern surroundings, highlighting the enduring resilience and rich history of Erbil.
