Description

Study of the art and historical treasures looted from Mesopotamia. In April of 2003, the world watched in shock as news broadcasts reported on the break in and the looting of the Iraq National Museum in Baghdad. Priceless antiquities, spanning ten thousand years of human history, were torn out from their glass cases, statues were thrown to the floor and smashed, and remains of temples and royal palaces were broken into pieces. The Looting of the Iraq Museum, Baghdad is a reconstruction in book form of one of the world’s largest and most important museums, which will never be the same again. Focusing on the objects housed at the museum and collected over decades of painstaking archaeological research and study, the book traces the rich tapestry of the history of ancient Mesopotamia from its earliest prehistory to the advent of Islam. Large and Heavy volume. Extra postage will be required for orders outside UK – please enquire in advance. Jascket slightly creased at spine ends otherwise VG in VG dustjacket
