Paul Emil Botta (1802-1870) , French Consul, began exploring in December of 1842 on the mound of Koujunjik, one of two mounds that were believed to be ancient Nineveh, according to local tradition. In 1843 he began work on another mound and discover ancient Khorsabad and the great palace of Sargon II. He sent various sculptures back to Paris and the reception was remarkable, to say the least. In 1849 he published five huge volumes, along with his partner M. E. Flandin. After Botta had paved the way for the recovery of ancient Nineveh the study of Assyriology became a scientific study to the present day.
