The Hanging Garden of Babylon and the meaning of Ezekiel 31:1-9

Start: Jan 16, 2018 06:00 PM

Location: Archaeology Lecture Theatre G6, UCL Institute of Archaeology

The Hanging Garden of Babylon, as imagined by German artist Ferdinand Knab (1886)

The Institute of Archaeology and Anglo-Israel Archaeological Society will jointly host a lecture by Stephanie Dalley (University of Oxford), at the Institute on 16 January.

Titled The Hanging Garden of Babylon and the meaning of Ezekiel 31:1-9, this lecture will explore the enigma of why this most famous of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World has never been found in Babylon itself. And if it wasn't there - which is what the evidence from the cuneiform record and archaeological excavation seems to suggest - then where was it? Come and find out.

All welcome. Admission free without ticket. The lecture will be followed by a wine reception.
