"Give me that crown!"
Paul Bremer, the head of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq (news - web sites), examines an ancient gold crown July 3, 2003 as the Baghdad museum briefly re-opens. One of the most significant archaeological finds of the 20th century, the Nimrud treasures, excavated in the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud near present day Mosul, was found safe and undamaged in a Baghdad bank vault earlier this week. The Nimrud treasures which date back to 900 B.C. and consist of gold artifacts and precious gems have not been seen since the early 1990's. REUTERS/Radu Sigheti
