Part 2 Palace of Zimri-LimStreaming Video - 2007
The Palace of Zimri-Lim at Mari was one of the wonders of the Mesopotamian world. This program documents the opening of an excavation site at the palace's gate, while an animated walk-through of the palace precincts enables viewers to follow in the footsteps of courtiers and the king himself. Information on life inside the palace-from the business of keeping it functioning smoothly, to matters of religion, to the pleasures of the harem-illustrates life in this once-great place. Unfortunately, restoration of Mari has become a race against time. Will erosion do what even Hammurabi could not achieve: the erasure of Mari from the face of the Earth?
