Ancient Ur, Tell el-Muqayyar, Dhi Qar Province, Iraq
Today, Ancient Ur is known as the modern city of Tell el-Muqayyar, Dhi Qar Province, Iraq (City). Sir Leonard Wooley excavated the ruins of Ancient Ur between 1922-1934 CE. His excavations have shown that great wealth lived within the city of Ur. However, after the Euphrates changed course, the ancient city was lost. Today, although there very little left, the ruins of Ancient Ur show a glimpse of the remarkable city it once was.
