Ashur

Ashur (Hebrew: אַשּׁוּר‎; often also transliterated as Asshur to reflect the pointing of Hebrew letter 'ש' (Shin) in the Masoretic text, which doubles the 'ש'), was the second son of Shem, the son of Noah. Ashur's brothers were Elam, Aram, Arpachshad and Lud.

The Hebrew text of Genesis 10:11 is somewhat ambiguous as to whether it was Ashur himself (eg. as reads the KJV), or Nimrod who built the cities of Nineveh, Resen, Rehoboth-Ir and Calah in Assyria, since the name Ashur can refer to either the person or the country.

Assur - Ashur (Qal'at Sherqat)

Assur (also spelled Ashur, from Assyrian Aššur; Arabic: أشور Aššûr; Hebrew: אַשּׁוּר Aššûr, Aramaic: ܐܫܘܪ Ašur), was one of the capitals of ancient Assyria. The remains of the city are situated on the western bank of river Tigris, north of the confluence with the tributary Little Zab river, in modern day Iraq, more precisely in the Al-Shirqat District (a small panhandle of the Salah al-Din Governorate).

Assur is also the name of the chief deity of the city. He was considered the highest god in the Assyrian pantheon and the protector of the Assyrian state. In the Mesopotamian mythology he was the equivalent of Babylonian Marduk.

The site of Assur is a United Nations World Heritage Site, but was placed on the list of World Heritage Sites in danger in 2003, in part due to the conflict in that area, and also due to a proposed dam, that would flood part of the site.

On Lunar Archaeology

What does Lunar Archaeology have to do with Assyria? Nothing really except the images below were used as an example of what to look for on other planets for possible signs of Ancient Cities. The first set was sent to us from an anomaly site that said;

Two old photos of the Moon, showing something that resembles a city seen from the top.

That linked us to a Russain site with this caption;

...
Похоже на аэрофотосъемку древнего города с оборонительными стенами и четкой планировкой городских кварталов... Не правда ли? Однако это не Земля – это участок поверхности Луны. Загадка?

Translation:
It is similar to the aerial photography of ancient city with the defensive walls and the clear planning of urban blocks… Isn't that true? However, this not the Earth - this is the section of the surface of the Moon. Riddle?

Well the lack of craters is a clue that it is not on the Moon...

But SETI also had a section of this image on their Lunar Archaeology site;
