    Default Ancient palace emerges from Iraqi reservoir after water levels fall

    An ancient palace has emerged from an Iraqi reservoir after water levels dropped precipitously because of a drought.

    A team have been able to perform an archaeological dig - discovering several rooms, inscribed clay tablets and wall paintings.

    A lack of rain and the release of water through the Mosul Dam to relieve dry conditions has led to the Mittani Empire site being revealed.

    The site was flooded when the Mosul Dam was built in the mid-1980s before archaeologists were able to examine it.
