First published in 1947, this classic account of the history of archaeological exploration in Mesopotamia won many converts to archaeology, for the author has an exciting tale to tell. Skillfully knitted together into a single narrative are the lives and accomplishments of the great pioneer Assyriologists: Rich, Rawlinson, Layard, and many other explorers whose exploits are made to come alive through extensive quotations from their vivid letters. The text in this revised edition has been updated and a new chapter added, bringing the narrative up to the present. Includes 80 black and white illustrations and maps.
