“I captured many troops alive: from time to time I cut off their arms and hands; from others I cut off their noses, ears, extremities. I gouged out the eyes of many troops. I made one pile of the living and one of heads. I hung their heads on trees around the city” King Ashurnasirpal II, ruler of Nimrud from 883 – 859 BC.
