His current project, funded by the State Department and others, is part of the World Monument Fund's Future of Babylon program, which aims to preserve the site. Initially, the goal was to stabilize ancient walls and roofs in danger of collapsing. Now, an important part of the program is training local technicians, most of them farmers and laborers from nearby villages.
The hope is that they will come away with useful skills in a region with high unemployment — along with the desire to help protect Babylon. Centuries-old scars For decades, the site has come under repeated threat, even from attempts at restoration. In the s and s, for example, damage was done when mis-sized modern bricks were installed and poured concrete trapped saline groundwater underneath the site.
In the early 20th century, when Iraq was ruled by British mandate, a railway ran through the remains of the ancient city. The Polish military, part of the U. The Iraqi oil ministry even ran a pipeline through the site and was only forced to remove it last month, after the antiquities department took the ministry to court.
The damage and neglect are part of the reason Babylon has never qualified as a World Heritage Site. But all of the site's more recent scars deserve to be considered part of its cultural heritage, Allen argues.
So stop thinking that's your obstacle to understanding the site and say that's part of its history," he says.
Allen says he would have kept the Polish military watchtower, which was demolished a few years ago, as a reminder of Babylon's more recent military history. King Nebuchadnezzar II is credited with having created the terraced Hanging Gardens of Babylon some 2, years ago, said to be one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.
The Biblical legend of the Tower of Babel was believed to be based on a real Babylonian temple tower soaring feet — so high it could be seen in neighboring cities. The site of the ancient city spans almost 4 miles by 2 miles.
Built on layers, only a small part of it has been excavated. The top layer of the city's massive Ishtar Gate was excavated by German archaeologists starting in and reconstructed in Berlin's Pergamon Museum.
A cuneiform inscription from Nebuchadnezzar's era, removed to the Pergamon, describes the wonders of the city: I fixed doors of cedar wood adorned with bronze at all the gate openings. I placed wild bulls and ferocious dragons in the gateways and thus adorned them with luxurious splendor so that mankind may gaze on them in wonder.
On weekends, the site is often filled with Iraqi visitors. Wind and sand whip through a courtyard with buildings housing a museum and souvenir shop, closed for years now due to lack of visitors. A metal post office box, where visitors could mail postcards in the s, stands rusted and abandoned.
Babylon was one of the most reviled cities in the Bible, condemned to destruction for its wickedness. Today, off the beaten track from the excavated city, fenced off by wire, are the remains of a well where legend has it that two wayward angels — mentioned in the Quran as coming to Babylon to practice magic — were hung upside down.
Pride in the past, but not in its artifacts Despite Iraqi pride at laying claim to a heritage that produced the world's first code of law and first cities, Iraqis don't necessarily value their country's archaeological sites. For centuries, people in the area saw Babylon as a source of solid bricks to take away to build homes in the city of Hilla and surrounding villages.
Over time, townspeople removed an entire top layer of the Ishtar Gate and threw away the ornamental glazed blue bricks that were later reclaimed to make up part of the reconstructed gate in Berlin's Pergamon Museum.His current project, funded by the State Department and others, is part of the World Monument Fund's Future of Babylon program, which aims to preserve the site.
