This volume deals with a dam and aqueduct structure that nowhere else survived from pre-Roman times. The aqueduct is part of the larger Atrush Canal built by the Assyrian king Sennacherib between 703 and 690 BCE to water Ninevah's extensive gardens. The watercourse is believed to have functioned actively for more than 2,000 years. Allegedly the aqueduct was constructed of more than two million dressed stones and using stone arches and waterproof cement. Jerwan is a locality north of Mosul in the Nineveh Province of Iraq. The geographic area corresponds to that inhabited by Yezidis in Iraq, at least until the recent past. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory #
