Project online: Uruk in the 21st century… BCE!

This is the last missing part of our Uruk exhibition material. The reconstruction of Uruk during the 3rd dynasty of Ur was actually a long finished project, but was enriched by a loose, lifelike reconstruction of the city for the exhibition “Uruk – 5000 years of megacity”. You can read everything about the project on […]

News from the ongoing Uruk exhibition

Today, I was in the neighbourhood of the Pergamonmuseum and used that to do a check-up on the animations. Everything was working fine of course. While I was going through the exhibition, I was rather watching the people enjoying, than the exhibition itself. Of course, I have visited several times and had therefore eyes for […]

Send greetings from Uruk!

It is basically the same motif as you can see in our project description of the Seleucid Period in Uruk. There are only 1.000 cards, so be […]
