Skillfully knitted together into a single narrative are the lives and accomplishments of the great pioneer Assyriologists, Rich, Rawlinson, Layard, and many other explorers of the last century. The epic of discovery thus created is extended to include the excavations of more recent times, and brings the thread of historical research down to the present day. It presents a picture of many great personalities, both British and foreign, in which the courage and perseverance of the early adventurers is matched by the patient ingenuity of their successors m a less hazardous age.
