Historical carvings of Assyrian conflict scenes revealed on stone gate in Iraq broken by Islamic State group

Archeologists in Iraq have unearthed 2,700-year-old stone carvings that have been chiseled right into a beforehand undiscovered part of the Mashki Gate, an iconic construction in what was as soon as the traditional Assyrian capital metropolis of Nineveh.

The eight intricately carved marble bas-reliefs, which depict conflict scenes, grapevines, palm bushes and different motifs, have been present in what’s now Mosul, throughout a mission to revive the gate after Islamic State group militants destroyed it. Consultants consider that the ornamental gate dates again to King Sennacherib, who dominated the Assyrian empire from 705 B.C. to 681 B.C., in response to a press release from the Iraqi Council of Antiquities and Heritage.
