Gilgamesh, Uruk, and Iraq

BBCnews is reporting a German-led expedition has discovered Uruk, the capitol of the empire created by Gilgamesh. They think they've even found Gilgamesh's tomb, underneath the old Euphrates riverbed.

No word whether this work was done before or after the war, but, knowing academic timelines, was almost certainly done before.
