Babylonian Chronicles

‎The Babylonian Chronicles are a series of clay tablets

‎Many series of tablets recording major events 

They narrate events beginning in the eighth century BC and cover nearly 500 years of history.

The Babylonian Chronicles are many series of tablets recording major events in Babylonian history. They are thus one of the first steps in the development of ancient historiography. The Babylonian Chronicles were written from the reign of Nabonassar up to the Parthian Period, by Babylonian astronomers (“Chaldaeans”), who probably used the Astronomical Diaries as their source.

Almost all of the tablets were identified as chronicles once in the collection of the British Museum, having been acquired via antiquities dealers from unknown excavations in the 19th century. All but three of the chronicles are unprovenanced.

The Chronicles provide the “master narrative” for large tracts of current Babylonian history.
