Abstract

I visited the archaeological sites of Nebi Younus and Nimrud on Monday 3 April 2017 as a member of a group invited by Ms Layla Salih, who was then employed by the Iraqi State Board of Antiquities and Heritage to document the current state of heritage sites in Nineveh Province. At Nebi Younus the group included my colleague Dr Saad Eskander, several members of UNESCO Iraq, two ICONEM staff who were taking drone images of the site of UNESCO, two journalists from the New York Times, and archaeologist Dr Muzahim Mahmoud (Figure 1). At Nimrud the group consisted only of Ms Laylah Salih, Dr Saad Eskander, and the two ICONEM staff members, who were documenting the site by drone for UNESCO.1 The notes I present here represent my informal impressions only and should not be taken as definitive assessments. I am neither an excavation archaeologist nor a structural engineer, and I did not carry out systematic investigations of either site. Nor do I presume to recommend what should happen to either site now: that is for Iraqi experts and stake-holders to decide.
