181. The Birth of Babylon

In January, Tom and Dominic explored the history of Babylon, from Nebuchadnezzar onwards (episode 145 in the Rest Is History feed).


At the end of that episode, there was a promise to revisit Babylon's earlier period to fully do the topic justice - so here it is!


Tune in to hear about the constant theft of the Statue of Marduk, the formidable Assyrians, and what Dominic describes as his 'favourite impersonation ever'...
