Babylonia in the News

During the course of surfing the web, I have come across some stories about Babylonia in the press that I have not seen before, even though some of the stories are not all that recent. I thought I might provide links to the stories in case anyone else might find them intersting. So here goes:

1) Commentary on the recent Babylonia exhibit at the British Museum.
2) Another article on the same topic.
3) Another article in the London Times discusses ancient astronomy, including a Babylonian document that records sightings of Venus.
4) A stela from the reign of Nabonidus.
