Nineveh was an ancient Assyrian city of Upper Mesopotamia, located in modern-day northern Iraq. From 1931-1932, Max Mallowan worked under Reginald Campbell Thompson at the archaeological excavation at Nineveh. Agatha Christie joined her husband at Nineveh and wrote Lord Edgware Dies at the site. The novel is dedicated to Campbell Thompson and his wife.[1]
