Artist's Reconstruction of Ur III

Artist's Reconstruction of Ziggurat at Ur III

 Susa, a good example of a partially excavated Mesopotamian Tel from the air. Capital of the Elamites.

Nineveh. An artistic rendering of the ancient Assyrian capital and religious center. Notice the Ziggurat (step pyramid structure) at the far left.

Hammurabi's Law Code, the steorite stele found at Susa. Hammurabi was the Babylonian (Amorite) King who ruled c. 1750 BC. He enacted a set of laws based on Mesopotamian precedents and later had them inscribed on this stele. Now in the Louvre Museum.
