Iraq's Ancient Past
Julia M. Klein's December 29, 2009 Wall Street Journal story about a long-term show — "Iraq's Ancient Past: Rediscovering Ur's Royal Cemetary" — at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Philadelphia, caught my eye with its accompanying photo (in black and white) of Queen Puabi's Headdress.
Viewing it in color (above) takes it to a whole new level.
The museum has just activated an interactive website to enable exploration of the show and related topics.
Above and below,
other artifacts found at Ur.
