Nimrud: Materialities of Assyrian Knowledge Production

nimrud banner

How do archaeological artefacts find their way into gallery cases and museum websites? How do objects found in the ground get transformed into specimens for scientific and historical study? How have the processes of making archaeological knowledge changed over the past two centuries? This research project tackles those questions using objects excavated from the archaeological site of Nimrud, ancient Kalhu, capital city of the Assyrian empire in the early first millennium BC.

The Nimrud Project was funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council from January 2013 until March 2014. It brings together as many as possible existing online resources on Nimrud, as well as creating substantial new interpretative content, designed and licensed for re-use. We also hosted several related public events during 2013-14.
