Support for illustrations for publication of the results of the 1989-90 excavations at the Hazli Gate of Nineveh, the last Assyrian Empire capital. In response to Prof. David Stronach’s request for funding for the preparation of illustrations needed for the publication he is completing, the Naby Frye Assyrian Fund for Culture is pleased to avail itself of the opportunity to advance in depth knowledge of the ancient Assyrian world and its magnificent architectural achievements. 

Prof. Stronach writes: “By extraordinary chance my excavations at the Hazli Gate (at the end of Niniveh’s long east wall) revealed clear evidence of how this gate was attached, damaged and repaired and how the last defenders of the Gate were still engaged in close combat with the attackers when the roof collapsed and all the persons in that location were buried by falling debris that remained undisturbed for the next 2,700 years.”
