The reconstruction of the White Temple on the Anu Ziggurat was published in a brand new anthology by John Julius Norwich. In this book, ancient cities from all over the world are described. Of course, the beginning is made by… Uruk!

Norwich, J.J. (Ed.) 2014: Cities that shaped the Ancient World, London: Thames & Hudson.

Besides our animations during the exhibition “Uruk – 5000 years of megacity”, there was also one made by the “Deutsche Luft- und Raumfahrtgesellschaft” (DLR). We provided the models and the DLR created a flight through space down to Iraq and into Uruk, during the Seleucid Period. You can find the animation and a comprehensive description in the link below.

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 our website, where you also find a short video.

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. Enjoy!

During the exhibition “Uruk – 5000 years of the megacity” an animation of the Seleucid Bit Resh was displayed. We updated our website with the animation, or you can watch it right above!
