  This book allows the reader a fascinating glimpse of how the Assyrian empire worked behind the scenes. It contains some , mostly quite short, letters sent to the Assyrian king from his entourage of scholars, priests, physicians, astrologers and magical practitioners, the latter commonly called exorcists/5.   Excitingly for book lovers everywhere, the British Museum will also attempt to recreate the 7th century BC Library of Ashurbanipal, which was sadly burned to the ground by rival forces in BC. However, it was this destructive fire that ironically ended up preserving all of the cuneiform tablets, according to : Kristine Moore.
