The University of Toronto’s excavations at Tell Tayinat, located on the Plain of Antioch in southeastern Turkey, have uncovered the impressive remains of an Assyrian settlement (ca. 8th-7th Cent. BCE), including a temple and a cache of cuneiform tablets, and most recently a citadel gate adorned with spectacular monumental sculptures. This illustrated lecture will highlight the exciting discoveries of the University of Toronto's ongoing excavations at ancient Tayinat, and what they reveal about the nature of Mesopotamia’s cultural and historical influence on its ancient Near Eastern neighbours.
