Ancient city of Mardaman discovered


A collection of old tablets discovered concealed inside jugs have revealed the location of an ancient lost royal Mesopotamian city in the Kurdistan region of Iraq. I just read the article on LiveScience about the discovery of the city of Mardaman: "Ruins from the lost city of Mardaman, which dates back some 4,800 years, have been discovered in the Kurdistan region of northern Iraq, archaeologists just announced."

Here's the article link: Mardaman

And a YouTube clip with some great pictures: Mardaman video

Very interesting. I love it when history, archeology and other disciplines work together to corroborate and further explain our past.
