Summary
An exciting story of archaeological detection as well as a vividly written description of a little-known civilization. Dalley, a world expert on ancient Babylonian language, describes how deciphering an ancient Assyrian text-- and comparing it to sculpture in the British Museum-- provided the clues that enabled her to pin down where the Garden was positioned and to describe in detail what it may have looked like
