In what is being called a “surprising discovery,” archaeologists have unearthed a 3,400-year-old, Bronze Age palace at a reservoir in the Kurdistan region of Iraq after water levels dropped because of drought. The palace, known as Kemune, dates back to the Mittani Empire, which dominated large parts of northern Mesopotamia and Syria from the 15th to the 14th century BCE, according to the University of Tübingen.

MAB: I LOVE stories like this!


We need a lot more of this scholarly kind of articles, instead of all of the ranters, ravers, and armchair pundits, spouting self serving megalomaniacal verbal bilge, picking stupid semantic fights, and wrangling over ridiculous stuff, those "nattering nabobs of negativity," while the world goes by leaving them frustrated and leaving some even belligerently ignorant.....you know what I mean....pointless rants are one thing, probably inevitable here at OEN, given the format, but quick links about breakthrough discoveries like this one make the rest of it all so much more interesting.


By the way, that famous list of N words (uttered by former VP Spiro Agnew before he had to resign from office), were written by a speechwriter named Von Helms, who lived in Santa Fe.


You can tell from Agnew's speech that it was entirely rehearsed, and as brilliant as the words may seem, someone else wrote them. The context must be pointed out: he was attacking the media~

Interesting article and sad that the USA is an accomplice in the destruction of ancient sites with its past support of Muslim extremists like ISIS, Al-CIAda, the Taliban and others. Who find these places of antiquity to be "idolatry" and must be destroyed.


Why these places of old didn't bother former Muslim's faith to be left alone and ignored until Wahhabi followers decided they must not stand; with the US government in full support of the Saudi regime; where 15 of the 17 alleged PNAC 9/11 hijackers came from. And the tRump administration wanting to provide nuclear technology to them is delusional!


Like Mr. Fox, it would be nice to see more historical articles on OEN than the same tiresome political rants some post.
