New (but old) project online: The Sin-kashid palace of Uruk

During the Uruk exhibition, that was displayed in Berlin and Herne during 2013 and 2014, we presented a detailed reconstruction of the Old-Babylonian palace of Sin-kashid.

New project online: Building H of Habuba Kabira

Not so long ago, we finished a small project that visualised a building in Habuba Kabira, dated into the Uruk Period. Finished is probably not the correct term, as this is only a preliminary result. The reconstruction of this building is based on the preliminary publications and the final publication is still not available. Nevertheless, […]

New project online: Architectural Layer 8 of Uruk

Do you speak Turkish?

A while ago, we made a website on the prehistoric rock paintings of the Latmos Mountains in Western Turkey. The website was entirely in German and English. As the project is a German-Turkish cooperation, translating the website into Turkish was the right thing to do. With the help of Pınar Atılgan, we finally added the third […]
