This book describes the discovery of Assyrian sites in Nineveh, Iraq. It intersperses journeys and descriptions of people and places with accounts of archaeological discoveries. Layard?s romantic view of the countryside and local people blended with his rediscovery of Assyria.
Before Austen Henry Layard unearthed its remains, skeptics claimed that Nineveh was just a mythical concoction of Bible writers, or that if it ever existed, the Bible had exaggerated its dimensions and magnificence. What was discovered instead not only proved the skeptics wrong, but showed that if anything the place was even more magnificent than the Bible had pictured!

Read Layard's gripping account of all he went through to unearth the TRUTH about the ancient Assyrian capital, and see if at the end you're still a Bible skeptic. Hey, believe what you want; but PLEASE don't accuse Bible believers of accepting it "without evidence." Huh?
Very interesting book. Buying the kindle version saved me over 25 bucks and it is just as useful as a hardcopy book would be.
Just an incredible adventure in a time when true discovery was possible. Amazing book. Personally I think this would be a great story to turn in to a movie, if done right. L
Niniveh and Its Remains is a fascinating account about the astounding discoveries made in Niniveh and in the surrounding areas. A must read item for anyone interested in a first hand account written by one of the pioneers uncovering the remains of the Assyrian Empire.
I was researching where the Catholic Church got a lot of there beliefs from and they took it from the Babylonian demonic priest thousands of years ago. This is why they pray to a church and a lady.
This classic account of Layard's discoveries in Nimrud,(not really Nineveh, althought when he wrote the book, he thought it was Nineveh, reads like a facinating adventure story. I love the large print and quality of the book, and binding.

The many excellent illustrations give life and meaning to Layard's considerable contribution to archaeology.
