The Assyrian Women Traders of Ancient Anatolia

Historic documents unearthed during excavations in Anatolia's oldest international trade center, Assyrian Trade colony KaniƟ-Karum, have revealed that women made commercial deals and impressed their seal 4,000 years ago.

It's Assyria. With an A.

By Sasa Jovanovic

It was by a stroke of fate and a seating algorithm that on an EasyJet flight I met Nino. Romi and I were on our return flight from London. While traveling in pairs is normally not an issue, on a plane with three-seat aisles, the third seat is left to chance.

The First Library in the World to Reopen

By Salaam al-Shamaa

Baghdad -- It does not seem that the 3,000-year-old Royal Library of Ashurbanipal in Mosul will reopen soon, even though international institutions and universities pledged to donate hundreds of titles to the project. This library was one of the victims of the war and the fighting between the Islamic State and the Iraqi forces and Popular Mobilisation Forces. The library stopped operating in 2014.

Tribute to the Assyrian King

By Warren Reinsch

Early in the eighth century b.c.e., the nation of Assyria was weak politically and militarily. It was under the dominion of its northern neighbor, Urartu. When a weak king came to power in Urartu in 746--745 b.c.e., Assyria rebelled and a new ruler emerged. Pulu (or Pul) assumed the name Tiglath-Pileser iii after one of Assyria's greatest kings.

The Hidden $129 Million Assyrian Relief

By Martin Bailey

The British Museum's hidden basement galleries are to remain closed under its new masterplan for a sweeping redisplay of its collections--but what treasures do they hold? Among the antiquities still being stored there is the Banquet Scene (645-635BC), the world's finest single Assyrian relief sculpture, of the kind destroyed by Islamic State in Iraq.

Assyrian Women's Choir Sing a Different Tune

By Chris Boulous

Singing means different things to different people. For the women of the Assyrian Women's Choir, singing is hope. It is freedom. It is a form of expression. The sound is not important. The lyrics are secondary. What is evident is the joy in their faces when they belt out a tune. You see, the majority of the woman were not allowed to sing in their home countries of Iraq and Syria.
