the treasure of Nimrud — which dates from the eighth and ninth centuries B.C. — consists of over 100 pounds of solid gold jewelry, precious metals and other priceless artifacts, including a crown made from more than a kilogram of gold. Discovered 15 years ago in northern Iraq, the exquisite objects had not been seen since before the first Gulf War.
