The Architecture of Late Assyrian Royal Palaces

Chapter 4 focuses on the eighth century, a period from which only very little palatial architecture has survived. The chapter argues that the Northwest Palace in Kalḫu remained the primary palace of the empire throughout this period. Adad-nerari’s so-called Upper Chambers were probably conceived as an extension to the Northwest Palace. Tiglath-pileser III does seem to have attempted to construct a new major royal palace, but it was never finished. It was probably located in the south-west corner of the citadel, where Esarhaddon’s Southwest Palace would later emerge.
