    The ancient Mesopotamian city of Babylon has
    just been declared a Unesco World Heritage Site.

    Why on earth did it take so long?
    Isn't it known as "The Cradle of Civilisation"?

    Yes, home to Hammurabi's Code, and of course, the invention of the lawyer (solicitor) 🙂 The US should have kept bombing it!

    Because it is mostly ruins, that have been plundered over the millenia?

    A lot of the good stuff is distributed around the world.
