The Forgotten Kingdom offers a comparative look at the history of archaeology, archaeological photography and the community landscape from the early twentieth to twenty-first centuries by presenting a selection of photographs from the excavations conducted at Tell Atchana, ancient Alalakh, both in the 1930s-40s and the present day.

The site is located along the major branch of the Orontes River in the Amuq Valley of Hatay, near present-day Antakya in southern Türkiye. It is the largest Middle and Late Bronze Age settlement in the region and was the capital of Mukish kingdom in the second millenium BC.
