page updated February 5, 2004

This page is the Homepage and Index for the data being accumulated by LEARNING SITES in preparation for comprehensive interactive reports on the structures (palaces, temples, ziggurat, gates, palatial buildings, and houses of officials) on the citadel at Nimrud/Kalhu, Assyria (Iraq).
Remains of earlier strata were discovered below the buildings marked here with an '*'.


Major buildings were used in one way or another until the end of the Assyrian Empire, some into the Neo Babylonian and/or Persian periods; and there was a Hellenistic settlement on the citadel.
