|Caption||Glamorous image of the Assyrian Empire at its height, which appeared as a black and white illustration in an article in the series "Buried Cities of the Past" in Look and Learn issue no 239 (13 August 1966). The original caption read: "The warlike Assyrians lived a life of luxury and ease in their capital city of Nineveh, owing to the unlimited slave labour supplied by prisoners of war. King Sennacherib used slaves to construct a splendid palace at Nineveh on an artificial platform of mudbrick and bitumen, diverting the waters of the river Tigris around it." Original artwork.|
