Babylon gardens location discovered


Research suggests that the Hanging gardens of Babylon, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, were actually located 300 miles to the north of Babylon’s in the city of Nineveh.

Oxford academic Dr Stephanie Dalley first made the claim that the gardens were actually found in Nineveh in 1992 but has spent the last 20 years researching this claim further in order to provide sufficient evidence to back it up.

He said: “It’s taken many years to find the evidence to demonstrate that the gardens and associated system of aqueducts and canals were built by Sennacherib at Nineveh and not by Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon.

“For the first time it can be shown that the Hanging Garden really did exist”
