Abstract

This article presents the Iraqi excavations undertaken by the Department of Antiquities and Heritage, and later the State Board of Antiquities and Hertiage, that started in the 1980s and continued until shortly before the outbreak of the 2003 war. What started as primarily restoration work at the Northwest Palace in Nimrud and some of the major temples on the citadel, soon transformed to excavations throughout various parts of the Nimrud citadel, as major discoveries, including the Queens' tombs, were made. We present here the results of excavations on the Nimrud citadel that have not previously been published or only published in short detail in other volumes.
