In Iraqi Kurdistan close to the areas under ISIS control large scale excavations have revealed the remains of unknown hidden royal cities and found traces of an extensive water management system bringing new insights into Ancient Mesopotamia, cradle of Civilisation 5000 years ago. Archaeologists on the ground backed by the world’s leading Oriental research institutes are at the forefront in this race against time to save our common Heritage. Northern Iraq has become their new Eldorado and these findings will broaden our understanding of Assyrian history when the great cities of the Empire thrived 3000 years ago (Assur, Nimrud, Korsabad, Ninive).
