Sydne Morris's curator insight, January 24, 2014 11:00 PM

I loved this article. This is such an amazing find and once again shows that just because there is no evidence doesn't mean something isn't true. I have heard many things over years about the fabled Hanging Garden of Babylon. The idea that it was actually in Assyria instead of Babylon probably will face some scrunity. But if she has enough evidence then all the more she should present this. Once again awesome finding :)
