2. Assyrian places In this chapter we encounter the city where everything started and the city where the empire of the first millennium first came together: Aššur and Kalhu are two of Iraq’s most significant archaeological sites. A glimpse at the trading colony at Kaneš in Central Turkey will enable us to investigate Assyrian history of the early second millennium BC further afield, while Dur-Katlimmu, an important provincial centre in Syria, will serve to emphasize the impact of Assyria’s expansion from the 13th century BC onwards. The story of the exploration of those key sites will give insight into Assyria’s

3. Assyrians at home The following sketches illustrate the great variety of living conditions and human experiences in the Assyrian Empire. They have two things in common: they all date to the 7th century BC, the period when the source material is most numerous and diverse, and they all are situated in an urban context. This is not coincidental as the available sources all come from cities and tend to concern themselves with matters of urban life. We encounter a king, two scholars of a leading learned family, a wealthy landowner, and a wine merchant, as well as their families

5. Foreigners in Assyria This chapter looks at Assyrian interactions with the wider world by focusing on foreigners in the city of Aššur and how they got there. The first two cases explore Assyrian political and cultural links to the Mesopotamian south in the second millennium BC. The third case shows Assyrian diplomacy in action when an Anatolian ruler was invited, like it or not, to visit Aššur. The last two cases focus on inhabitants of the city of Aššur who had been relocated there by force from Iran and serve to emphasize how the Assyrian heartland was an increasingly
