The History of the Huthi Conflict
22/01/2019 6:00pm
The British-Yemeni Society in association with the London Middle East Institute
In the West the Houthi conflict, which erupted in 2004, is often defined through the lenses of either the Iranian-Saudi proxy war or the Sunni–Shia divide. Yet, as experienced by locals, the Houthi conflict is much more deeply rooted in the recent history of Sa'dah Province. Its origins must be sought in the political, economic, social and sectarian transformations since the 1960s civil war and their repercussions on the local society, which is dominated by tribal norms.
I am Ashurbanipal king of the world, king of Assyria
08/11/2018 10:00am - 24/02/2019 4:00pm
The British Museum
King Ashurbanipal of Assyria (r. 668–c. 631 BC) was the most powerful man on earth. He described himself in inscriptions as ‘king of the world', and his reign from the city of Nineveh (now in northern Iraq) marked the high point of the Assyrian empire, which stretched from the shores of the eastern Mediterranean to the mountains of western Iran. This major exhibition tells the story of Ashurbanipal through the British Museum's unparalleled collection of Assyrian treasures and rare loans.
