Excerpt from Babel and Bible: Three Lectures on the Significance of Assyriological Research for Religion; Embodying the Most Important Criticisms and the Author's Replies

It was in the year 1820 that Claudius James Rich, an officer of the English East India Company at Bagdad, undertook, for the recovery of his health, a trip into the Kurdish Mountains, and on his way back he spent a few days at Mosul, the well-known com mercial town on the right bank of the Tigris. There the large mounds on the other side of the river attracted his attention. They resembled those which he had seen near Hilla on the Euphrates and' which he correctly took for the remains of ancient Babylon. As the southern of the two largest mounds still has the official name of N unia, and is crowned with a mosque dedicated to the prophet Jonah, the hypothesis suggested itself that there, opposite Mosul, lay the ruins of Nineveh, the ancient capital of Assyria. Rich ex amined the mounds. He also heard of a large stone slab, engraved with representations of human figures and animals, which had been found some time before, but had been broken by the Turks because of religious prejudice. He was not, however, in a position to con tinne his investigations.

Now it happened that in 1842 Emile Botta, son of the well known Italian historian, was appointed French consul at Mosul, and was encouraged by the famous Orientalist, Julius von Mohl the second of the four brothers Mohl, who are a lasting honor to their native city Stuttgart - to follow up the path entered by Rich and to begin excavations in the mounds near Mosul. But neither on the southern mound, Nebi Yunus, nor on the northern, Kuyun j ik, were his endeavors rewarded with success.
