The Northwest Palace of Ashur-nasir-pal II at Nimrud

An Interactive Publication -- Prototype

project pages updated October 8, 2014
April 2010--It is with deep sadness that Learning Sites mourns the passing of Samuel M. Paley, pioneering Assyriologist whose vision of moving archaeological analyses and data dissemination into the digital age gave rise to the Nimrud Citadel interactive publication project. The virtual reality re-creation of the Northwest Palace will continue to expand in his memory.
