Exhibition catalogue: Ana ziqquratim

Complementing the ongoing exhibition “ana ziqquratim” in Strasbourg, the exhibition catalogue is published, where I was able to contribute a small article about the White Temple of Uruk. It is in French (thank you very much for the translation!), but the catalogue is worth a look. On 287 pages you will find over 30 articles […]

Published at Khanacademy.org

As part of the Ancient Near East section at khanacademy.org, you can learn a lot about the Sumerian culture. One article is dedicated to the Anu Zuggurat and the White Temple in Uruk.

Project online: Building E of Uruk

This project was completed last year and I finally found the time to bring it online. Building E of Uruk is one of the biggest buildings of the ancient city and most certainly one of the most interesting ones. Check out our description and more pictures. Building E on artefacts-berlin.de

Project Update: The Late Uruk Period Animation

One of our longer animation for the exhibition “Uruk – 5000 years megacity” was the one explaining the Late Uruk Period. We updated our project page of the Late Uruk Period and finally added the animation for you to watch. You’ll find it at the top here or at the bottom of the project page. […]

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.
