One of 7 Wonders of Ancient World Finally Tracked Down

(NEWSER) – There has long been a slight problem with the declaration of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world—there was no proof it actually existed. Now, an Oxford University researcher says she’s tracked down evidence the garden did indeed grow in what is now Iraq, just some 300 miles north of where legend placed it. Stephanie Dalley spent roughly two decades pinpointing its location, which she has IDed as being located 300 miles from Babylon in Nineveh, and built by an entirely different king—an enemy one at that, reports the Guardian.

Though the story went that Babylonia’s King Nebuchadnezzar constructed the gardens to appease his homesick wife, Dalley asserts that it was instead Assyria’s King Sennacherib behind them. Using her expertise in the region’s ancient language, Dalley translated a number of Babylonian, Assyrian, Greek, and Roman texts, and found what the Independent describes as “four key pieces of evidence.” Among them: indications that Nineveh may have been seen as a “new Babylon” after the Assyrians conquered the Babylonians in 689 BC, studies of the topography near the respective locations, and signs that the historians who wrote about the gardens a few centuries later actually visited locations near Nineveh. The Guardianalso reports that, by Dalley’s translation, a 7th-century BC Assyrian inscription that had been woefully deciphered about a century ago revealed Nineveh was home to an intricate system of waterways that would have transported water 50 miles to the gardens. Recent digs have uncovered signs these aqueducts existed, notes the Guardian, which says the dangerous nature of the area has prevented much exploration of it.

Missing Climber Killed by Venom

NEWSER) – One of the rock climbers who helped retrieve the body of one of his peers called the sight “tragic and horrifying,” and it’s easy to see why: Tucson’s Steven Johnson was found dangling from a cliff, where he had been stung to death by bees, reports the Arizona Daily Star. Johnson apparently rappelled off the cliff looking for a place to climb, but he had the misfortune of ending up in mid-air a few feet from a beehive on the rock. The medical examiner said he died from “mass envenomation,” the result of hundreds of stings. The bees also killed his dog
