2023 -- Table of Gods, uncovering the world's oldest recipes, led by Arim Hawsho, presents a detailed peek into the elaborate banquet planned by Ashurnasirpal II and chronicled on a stela set outside the throne room at the Northwest Palace.

2015 -- It with utter dismay and deep sorrow that we had provided links to the ISIS/Da'esh online videos showing their destruction of the Northwest Palace, Nimrud (be advised those were awful heart-wrenching displays); most have since been removed. The videos appeared genuine, and later on-sites reported the devastation. The Northwest Palace no longer exists (except as our digital surrogate).

2010 -- It is with sadness that Learning Sites mourns the passing of Samuel M. Paley, pioneering Assyriologist whose vision of moving archaeological analyses and data dissemination into the digital age gave rise to the Nimrud Citadel interactive publication project. The virtual reality re-creation of the Northwest Palace will continue to expand in his memory.
