When King Hezekiah rebelled against Assyria in 701 BCE, Sennacherib launched a campaign against Judah and conquered all of its fortified cities. Sennacherib immortalized the conquest of the city of Lachish in huge reliefs that he installed in his palace in the Iraqi city of Nineveh. This animated video brings alive the reliefs uncovered in archaeological excavations and dramatically depicts the Assyrian war machines assaulting the city. The inhabitants of Lachish appear in the reliefs as they valiantly fight from the walls and then as they are brought a as humiliated prisoners of war before Sennacherib, seated on his throne.
