This may have simply intended “Place of Fish” or may have indicated a goddess associated with fish or the Tigris, possibly originally of Hurrian origin. Kouyunjik was, according to Layard , a Turkish name, and it was known as Armousheeah by the Arabs,  and is thought to have some connection with the Kara Koyunlu dynasty. This whole extensive space is now one immense area of ruins overlaid in parts by new suburbs of the city of Mosul. Early history[ edit ] Nineveh was one of the oldest and greatest cities in antiquity. The deep sounding at Nineveh uncovered layers now dated to early Hassuna culture period. The early city and subsequent buildings was constructed on a fault line and, consequently, suffered damage from a number of earthquakes. Texts from the Hellenistic period later offered an eponymous Ninus as the founder of Nineveh, although there is no historical basis for this.
The remains of these ancient cities are in modern day Pakistan. These were the key centers of the Indus Valley civilization. These also appear to have suddenly sprung up with no clear-cut traces of having evolved from primitive beginnings. The ruins of these ancient Indus Valley cities are immense. They are thought to have contained well over a million people each. In place was a system of town planning with straight streets and rectangular blocks, as well as wide main streets like modern boulevards.
Here are some of the places he lived. More recent scholars, however, beginning with Cyrus Gordon, have expressed doubt about this southern location for Ur: Sumerian Ur is never called “Ur of the Chaldeans” in hundreds of references in cuneiform texts. The Chaldeans were related to the Arameans, and didn’t penetrate the area of southern Mesopotamia until about BC.
An Elba tablet refers to “Ur in Haran. Migrations from southern Mesopotamia accord with records of migrations of Amorites into Babylonia from the end of the third millennium BC onward. We also know of the very strong religious connection between Sumerian Ur and Haran. Whatever the actual location of “Ur of the Chaldeans,” it doesn’t matter to the story of Abraham obeying God’s call. Haran The site of Haran, a strategic city in ancient times, lies along the Jullab River, near the source of the Balikh River, 24 miles southeast of the Turkish city Urfa, and 60 miles north of the confluence of the Euphrates and Balikh Rivers.
It is located on the main road that ran from Nineveh to Carchemish and was regarded of considerable importance by the Assyrian kings. Its chief cult was that of the Mesopotamian moon-god Sin. It was probably founded as a merchant outpost by the Sumerian city of Ur in the late third millennium BC.

Anno Domini The year numbering system used with Common Era notation was devised by the Christian monk Dionysius Exiguus in the year to replace the Era of Martyrs system, because he did not wish to continue the memory of a tyrant who persecuted Christians. Bede also introduced the practice of dating years before what he supposed was the year of birth of Jesus,  and the practice of not using a year zero.
The term “Common Era” is traced back in English to its appearance as “Vulgar Era” [e] to distinguish dates on the Ecclesiastic calendar from those of the regnal year , the year of reign of a sovereign, typically used in national law. The first use of the Latin term vulgaris aerae [f] discovered so far was in a book by Johannes Kepler. Thus, “the common era of the Jews”,   “the common era of the Mahometans”,  “common era of the world”,  “the common era of the foundation of Rome”.
Furthermore, several style guides now prefer or mandate its usage. Others have taken a different approach. People of all faiths have taken to using it simply as a matter of convenience. There is so much interaction between people of different faiths and cultures — different civilizations, if you like — that some shared way of reckoning time is a necessity. And so the Christian Era has become the Common Era.

Vitellius 69 The Roman Empire “officially” begins by tradition in 27 BC when Octavian receives the title “Augustus” — which then becomes the name by which we know him. We might think that the Empire, Imperium, begins with Augustus becoming Emperor, Imperator, but that is not the case. Imperator simply means “commander,” and this had long been in use with a specific meaning. An imperator was someone with a military command and imperium, which meant both military and civil authority in the area of his command.
This made Julius Caesar essentially the dictator of Gaul , once he had conquered it. That was dangerous, indeed fatal, for the Republic; but in those terms Julius Caesar began the creation of the Roman Empire already as an “emperor. It accompanies the institutional changes that were effected or completed by Augustus.
