If you're suspicious of the timing, it's a display at the British museum during mid-winter.

Short but excellent article. For the Logosian historians, Ashurbanipal was the guy that re-settled Israel to who knows where. And Assyria (in contrast to Egypt or the Hittites) was the first to master a large working empire, while consolidating a series of Assyrian city states under a single god.

Babylon gets a lot of attention due to the excilic writings, but only lasted a short period, before the next huge empire began (Persia).

Logos has quite a bit on Assyria, if you're curious. Some affordable:

Interesting article and exhibit that details among other things Ashurbanipal's atrocities of war and fighting of lions.  The article describes him as "the CEO of a ruthless global enterprise." It gives a good background of that time period.

I love the Assyrian gallery at the British Museum: it's one of the advantages of living near London! I'll certainly be going to this exhibition as they seem to have some additional material for it that's not normally on display.
