Uruk King List

Sunday, September 30th, 2007

As you may know, I have served two tours in Iraq. Unfortunately, I was not able to see many of ‘the sites’ while I was there. Now that I’m home, half-way around the world, I find myself in need of some research material and the only place to get what I need is Iraq! Go figure.

What I need is a new photo of a cuneiform tablet known as IM 65066, or the “Uruk King List”. It is housed in the Baghdad Museum, or was at one time. It is important because it helps to solve a chronological issue; unfortunately, the existing photo is very poor.

If any of you have a better photo, know someone who does, know someone who can get one, or know someone with enough pull to get me one… well, I’d be most grateful.
