A group of Italian archaeologists from the University of Udine in Italy has made significant progress at an ancient site in the Kurdistan Region’s Duhok province.

Il Giornale Dell’Arte published some photos of the excavation site on Tuesday, describing the recent progress as “extraordinary.”

The new discovery includes the uncovering of 10 new rock inscriptions that show “the Assyrian ruler Sargon in the presence of divinity,” which date back to 705-720 BC.

The discovery took place along an ancient irrigation canal approximately seven kilometers long in the Faida district, located 20 kilometers south of Duhok.
