PLAQUE The Heritage of Southern Iraq

Civilization began in southern Iraq. It is the land of great cities such as Ur and Babylon, where we developed writing and city living. Priceless information about mankind’s past still lies concealed beneath the landscape in ‘tells’ – earth mounds – that are the remains of ancient towns, villages and farmsteads. Since 2013 we have been excavating one of these, and have made exciting new discoveries about life in the Babylonian empire over 3,000 years ago.
