Centennial of the Yale Babylonian Collection

As part of the centennial celebration of the Yale Babylonian Collection, there were two special exhibitions in Sterling Memorial Library: “Treasures of the Yale Babylonian Collection” (November 2009) and “From Nineveh to New Haven” (November 2009 to February 2010).  The latter placed the development of the Collection within its historical, art historical, and Assyriological context.  The virtual gallery shown here provides a pictorial overview of the exhibit’s five thematic components, as well as details of selected documents and other artifacts.
