Map of the Neo-Assyrian Empire c. 912 - 612 BCE, showing expansion by Shalmeneser III (r. c. 859 - 824 BCE), Tiglath-Pileser III (r. c. 745 - 727 BCE), Sargon II (r. c. 722 - 705 BCE), Sennacherib (r. c. 705 - 681 BCE), and Ashurbanipal (r. c. 688 - 627 BCE). This period saw the lethal effectiveness of iron weapons and armor in the hands of a professional army, as well as the creation of great collections of knowledge like those found in the library at Nineveh.
