The Rise and Fall of Babylon

Gateway of the Gods


Anton Gill charts the history of Babylon, home of the famous Hanging Gardens and a wonder of the ancient world in itself. Beginning with a survey of Ancient Mesopotamian dynasties, he chronicles the city's rise under Hammurabi, its troubled fortunes in the centuries that followed, its golden age under a dynasty of Chaldean kings in the sixth and seventh centuries BC, and the life of its last great king, Nebuchadnezzar II - himself a military genius, law-giver and architect of the marvellous city once called 'the gateway of the gods'.
