Episode 88 – Assyria 5 The Destruction of Mitanni

Today we will take a journey through the cultural achievements of Kassite Babylon, which are beginning to reach their famous heights at the cultural intersection of what we would today call science and magic, though of course for the ancients these were one and the same. This will include a look at the remarkably well documented life of Raba-sa-Marduk, a Babylonian physician of international renown. Then we will return to warfare, with the wars of Babylon, the wars of Assur, and the wars between Assur and Babylon in the early 13th century.
