FOREWORD
AM indebted to Professor M. E. L. Mallowan, Director of the British School of Archaeology in Iraq(Gertrude Bell Memorial), for permission to reproduce photographs I took during the excavations at Nimrud.The three maps in this book were prepared by M. E. Knop, Chief Topographical Officer of the GeodeticInstitute, Copenhagen, on the basis of my sketches. My sincere thanks are due to him for this outstandingcontribution.Danish Oriental research owes a considerable debt to the Egyptologist, Professor C. E. Sander-Hansen,Ph.D. In thankful recognition of his interest and support over many years, I beg Professor Sander-Hansen toaccept the dedication of this book to himself.J. L.
