Bowdoin College holds six reliefs from the Neo-Assyrian period (911-609 BCE) of the Mesopotamian city of Nimrud. This exhibition examines both the ancient and the modern histories of the reliefs,  bringing them together for the first time in their 150-year history in the college’s collection, together with ivory inlays, cuneiform tablets, cylinder seals and palace vessels whose material legacy is evidence of esthetically sumptuous, culturally vibrant court life.
