Hazel and have just been to the British Museum to see the Babylon exhibition. Interesting, but a bit thin once you’re past the first room which has the scale models, maps and the bas relief lions and dragon from the Processional Way and the Ishtar Gate.
Actually, thinking about it there is an excellent short video of stills from the present day Babylon site, with the US army base in situ. It feels like a bit of an after thought, but maybe that’s intentional…. it certainly leads you to sympathise with the quote from one of the BM experts that siting the army base there is akin to putting it next to Stonehenge or the great pyramid at Giza.
