In Assassin’s Creed Mirage, you can come across an impressive collection of Historical Sites, including in the Wilderness territory. The Assassin’s Creed series has gained a reputation for its meticulous attention to detail when it comes to historical accuracy.
So, whether you are interested in history or simply wish to complete your codex to earn the Explorer Trophy, these sites are a must-visit.
Where To Find All AC Mirage Wilderness Historical Sites
Exploring the Wilderness in Assassin’s Creed Mirage can be an exciting adventure, but locating all 13 Historical Sites scattered throughout the region can be challenging. To make things less complicated, I’ve created a custom map to pinpoint the exact location of each Historical Site in Wilderness.
While following the same order as on the map above, I will provide instructions on where to find and how to obtain all Wilderness Historical Sites.
Historical Site #1 (Other Palaces): West of Winter Palace
The Assassin’s Creed Mirage‘s story begins in Anbar, a town located in the northwest corner of the map. At the beginning of the game, Historical Sites are unavailable for you to collect. However, if you revisit Anbar after reaching Baghdad, you can collect the Other Palaces Historical Site in front of the Winter Palace.
Historical Site #2 (Dur-Kurigalzu): South of the Dur-Kurigalzu Viewpoint
One of the Viewpoints in the Wilderness is located atop a huge artificial hill. To the south lies the Dur-Kurigalzu Historical Site, which provides information about the hill’s origin. This site is the remains of Dur-Kurigalzu, a ziggurat constructed by the Kassite civilization of ancient Mesopotamia.
Historical Site #3 (Camels): Southeast of Caravanserai
The Historical Site called Camels is located southeast of the Caravanserai, in front of a camel pen. It describes how the camels were the preferred mount and beast of burden.
Historical Site #4 (Caravanserai): In Front of the Entrance to the Caravanserai
You can easily locate this Wilderness Historical Site right in front of the entrance to the Caravanserai, which is situated northwest of Baghdad. You won’t be allowed by the guards to enter the settlement. However, you can use the nearby Merchant Group to move without being seen in exchange for a Merchant Token and grab the Historical Site in front of the guards.
Historical Site #5 (Agriculture): Next to the Water Mill Viewpoint
The Agriculture Historical Site is located near the giant water wheel in the Water Mill area northwest of Baghdad. You can find it in an alleyway near a docked fishing ship.
Since you’re here, you might as well grab the Water Mill Gear Chest containing the Hidden One Dagger or the Upgrade Schematic for it.
Historical Site #6 (Founding of Baghdad): East of the Dur-Kurigalzu Viewpoint
This Wilderness Historical Site is located on a sand hill directly east of the Dur-Kurigalzu Viewpoint in Baghdad’s desert. It explains how the new Abbasid Caliphate chose the location and constructed a round city that eventually became the core of Baghdad’s growth.
Historical Site #7 (Baghdad’s Canals): East of Qutrabbul Gate
To find this Historical Site, follow the canal east of the Qutrabbul Gate. You will see a pair of children playing in a dry canal nearby. The site explains how the Abbasids used canals to irrigate the city and its surroundings, as well as to connect the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers.
Historical Site #8 (Gates of Baghdad): On The Bridge of Iron Gate
This Historical Site in the Wilderness is located on the bridge that leads to the Iron Gate of the Harbiyah territory. This is the gate that Basim uses to enter Baghdad for the first time. The historical site explains that the inner gates are named after other cities in the empire, while the outer gates are mostly named after local buildings or activities.
Historical Site #9 (Zubaydah bint Ja’Far): Northwest of the Gate of Tahir
You can find this Site next to a tomb situated in a cemetery, just outside the Gate of Tahir. The tomb is of Zubaydah bint Ja’far, who was historically the wife of Caliph Harun al-Rashid and is also a well-known character in the stories of One Thousand and One Nights.

Historical Site #10 (Death and Afterlife): Southwest of the Gate of the Mills
This Wilderness Historical Site is near a small graveyard southwest of the Gate of the Mills. The site’s information indicates that the Abbasid Caliphate period codified many Islamic funeral practices.

Historical Site #11 (The One Thousand and One Nights): In Front of the Forty Thieves Hideout
The Historical Site is located directly south of Baghdad in a remote area. You can find it at the entrance to the Forty Thieves Hideout, southwest of the Viewpoint of an abandoned mosque. This site explains how the tales of One Thousand and One Nights were a compilation of older Persian and Indian stories along with newer Arabian tales that were first circulated during the Abbasid era.
Historical Site #12 (Silk Roads): Near the Jarjaraya Viewpoint
If you’re looking for the Silk Roads Historical Site, you can find it in Jarjaraya – a town located on the Tigris River near the southeast edge of the map. Just search for the carpet merchant, and you’ll find it. It’s worth mentioning that Jarjaraya is a part of the Silk Road, which is a network of merchants who traded rare goods all the way from China to the Mediterranean and back.
Historical Site #13 (Seleucia-on-the-Tigris): Near a Ruined Temple
For the final Wilderness Historical Site in AC Mirage, head to the swamp located in the southeast corner of the map. You find it between the ruins of Seleucia, the first capital of the Greek Seleucid Empire.
In this area, you can also break the stone floor with an oil jug to obtain the only Wilderness Lost Book.
