The British Institute for the Study of Iraq Books Online
Seventeen of BISI's books are now available for free download from these pages. All volumes on Nimrud, including Cuneiform Texts from Nimrud vols. 1-5 and Ivories from Nimrud 1-5, as well as other publications, were digitised for us by the AHRC-funded Nimrud project.
Eventually, all new BISI publications will be made available here as pdfs for free download. Our full backlist of publications will also be posted here as pdfs as time permits.
