Lost Wonder of the World (Hanging Gardens)
Once the world’s largest and most important settlement, the Assyrian city of Nineveh is being newly discovered. This film tells a dramatic, engaging, and inspiring story of archaeology, history, and the human spirit, set against the backdrop of a nation rebuilding after war.
Why did this great city disappear? And could it also be the site of the last lost wonder of the ancient world, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon? The film features emotional and inspiring human stories, and showcases remarkable archaeological breakthroughs and innovative forensics to reveal how newly-won insights are helping Iraquis reclaim their history.
The Lost World of the Hanging Gardens uncovers the most complete picture we have ever had of ancient Nineveh - the capital of one of the greatest civilisations, and the world’s first genuine superpower, the Assyrians.
