SR-Set: Babylon
Title: SR-Set: Babylon
Description: The recent NYT article on the controversial opening to the public of the ancient site of Babylon and the concern over its fate, and of other important archaeological sites, has prompted us to re-examine the variety of these related works offered by the vendors of Scholars Resource. Our set gathers works originating from sites in Iraq, and Mesopotamia in general; sparking the interest and concern for the fate of the many works as yet to be discovered and excavated.
