More on those hanging gardens

ONE OF THESE THINGS IS NOT LIKE THE OTHERS: We know where the 7 wonders of the ancient world are — except for one. The true location of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon remains an unsolved mystery, but the latest research suggests looking in a different place (J. L. MONTERO FENOLLÓS, National Geographic).

That place, of course, is the Assyrian capital Nineveh. I have already covered this story in a couple of posts (see here and links), but this article lays out the details of the situation very well.
