Uruk - an Article in Archeology Magazine

    NJust a quick note that the current issue on Archaeology Magazine, has an article ("The Everlasting City") on Uruk, which may have been the first city in the world. The photograph on the second page of the article is striking. It shows Uruk as it is today, a hill in a barren desert. Thousands of years ago the city was located in a lush delta. But then the river shifted its course and left the city to be abandoned by its inhabitants.
