More about the exhibition

The BP exhibition I am Ashburbanipal, king of the world, king of Assyria. (8 November 2018 – 24 February 2019) tells the story of Ashurbanipal through the British Museum’s unparalleled collection of Assyrian treasures and rare loans. Ashurbanipal was king of the Assyrian empire and is thought to be its last great ruler.

At the time of his reign (669–c. 631 BC), Assyria was the largest empire in the world, stretching from Cyprus in the west to Iran in the east, and at one point even included Egypt. The exhibition explores Ashurbanipal’s world through spectacular displays that evoke his palace and highlights the importance of preserving Iraq’s rich cultural heritage for future generations.
