It is a bit in the past, but we just received our deposit copies of the July issue of the Italian magazine Archeo. This magazine is dedicated to archaeological stories and news. Massimo Vidale and Andreas M. Steiner wrote an article about the fascinating metropolis of Uruk and of course mentioned the Uruk exhibition in Berlin. We even made it onto the cover of the magazine!

A couple of weeks ago, we asked you to write to us, if you want to win one of the newly published children books “Entdeckungsbuch Uruk”. We actually did draw a winner back then and are happy to announce now that Zenobia from the Netherlands has won the book! We already sent it to her and she was so kind to send us a photo back.

We sincerely hope that Zenobia has a lot of fun with this book and are looking forward to the next one that we can give away.

Since the 25th of April until today, the 8th of September 2013, the Uruk exhibition “Uruk – 5.000 years of the megacity” was presented at the Pergamonmuseum in Berlin. The exhibition attracted over 400.000 visitors in 19 weeks. On busy days, around 6.000 visitors a day walked trough the halls of the Pergamonmuseum and learned all about the ancient city of Uruk.

The first edition of the exhibition catalogue was sold out in July/August and the second edition is already in stores. Overall, there is very positive feedback for the exhibition in the media and we too received a lot of positive messages concerning our visualisations. This of course makes us very proud!

The next station of the exhibition will be Herne, a town near Bochum in North Rhine-Westphalia. The LWL-Museum für Archäologie is presenting the exhibition from the 3rd of November 2013 for 24 weeks until the 21st of April 2014. We will of course be there to install our animations and take some pictures of the exhibition.

As mentioned before, today is the last day to go and see the Uruk exhibition in Berlin. If you can make it, just go, if not, here is something to remember the 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 something else. It was fun to see people discussing the monumental architecture and how the old Uruk-ians made all that probably happen.

As far as I have heard, the exhibition had over 150.000 visitors and the exhibition catalogue is nearly sold out, so that the second edition is already in the making. If you haven’t seen the exhibition until now, you still have time. You can visit until the 8th of September in Berlin or after that in Mannheim. Don’t miss it!

In this issue of the “Antike Welt” (3/2013) are a couple of pictures from our Uruk visualisations and we even made it onto the cover! Well, I know it is not People Magazine, but we are nonetheless very proud. You’ll see visualisations of the Ur III Period, the Late Uruk Period and the Seleucid Period. There are five articles about Uruk and the exhibition. It’s definitely worth a look!
