Ancient Recipes Spring to Life

By Ashley Winchester

(BBC) -- The instructions for lamb stew read more like a list of ingredients than a bona fide recipe: "Meat is used. You prepare water. You add fine-grained salt, dried barley cakes, onion, Persian shallot, and milk. You crush and add leek and garlic."

The Art of Ancient Assyrian Kings

By Sara E. Cole

From the 800s to the 600s B.C., the kings of Assyria built grand palaces in their capital cities, located in the land we know today as Iraq.

These sculptures took the form of reliefs carved onto gypsum or limestone panels and affixed to interior walls.

In 1860, Bowdoin Medical School alumnus Henry Byron Haskell facilitated the shipment of five Assyrian reliefs from the site of Nimrud, in modern-day Iraq, to Brunswick, Maine. These large stone pieces from the Northwest Palace of King Ashurnasirpal II, built in 879 BCE, traveled on camelback and steamship to arrive where they are now.
