From the Publisher:

This book is “one of the greater archaeological books of all time.”
--Brian Fagan, from his introduction

A narrative of an expedition to Assyria during the years 1845, 1846 and 1947 by Sir Austen Henry Layard. A popular account of is discoveries reprinted here in a abridged form. The book appeared to rapturous acclaim and sold out numerous printings. Readers loved the fluent mix of high adventure and archaeology in his books, and intoxicating stew of compelling characters and sudden crises.  He made the Assyrians accessible to the common person and brought alive a shadowy Biblical civilization. This book, here with a brand-new introduction by Brian Fagan, Made Austen Henry Layard one of the archaeological immortals who achieved miracles of discoveries against seemingly impossible odds.

With an account of a visit of the Chaldæan Christians of Kurdistan, and the Yezidis, or devil-worshippers; and an inquiry into the manners and arts of the ancient Assyrians.
