Archaeologists unearth temple structure and valuable artifacts in Southern Iraq

Archaeologists unearth temple structure and valuable artifacts in Southern Iraq | Neolithic Houses | Scoop.it
Iraq, which the ancient Greeks called Mesopotamia or “land between two rivers” because of the Tigris and Euphrates, has always been regarded by archaeologists as the cradle of civilization.

 

Driven by the desire to reassemble some of the country’s lost history, a group of Iraqi archaeologists have recently managed to unearth artifacts and a Babylonian temple’s structure dating back to the middle Babylon period between 1532 BC to 1000 BC at an archaeological site in Iraq’s southern province of Nassiriya.

 

The site, excavated at 500 square meter at Abu Rabab plateau and located 150 km in east of Nassiriya city, is part of a project called “Gardens of Eden” which Iraqi government plans to launch over the next few years to promote tourism in the province.

Andrew Nayyar's curator insight, January 17, 2014 11:21 PM

This article is a great read as it explores the problems of preserving the past. In Mesoptamia's case their country (Iraq) has been invaded and destroyed. Their museums looted. Artifacts have been stolen and lost. Although this archeological find is amazing, the bitterness is that it may fall vicitm to a time and war.
