On the occasion of the British Museum's 250th anniversary the London Centre for the Ancient Near East, acting for the  British Museum, SOAS and other colleges of the University of London, invited scholars to convene for RAI 49 at the British Museum in London on 7-11 July 2003.

The Rencontre met in London (and indeed in Britain) for the first time in twenty-one years. The theme was Nineveh.

For the programme, list of participants and commemorative photograph visit the RAI website in Leiden.
