Alain is very knowledgeable about most of the items on display in the ancient near east section of the Louvre, and we enjoyed the tour and learned a lot. One large room contained artifacts from Dur-Sharrukin, built by Sargon II in about 710 BC. Alain told us the items were from the 12th century BC. He skipped the rooms dealing with the Levant, saying he knew nothing about them. The Levant includes ancient Israel and Judah, and would be of great interest to Jews, Christians, and Muslims.
