Looking for the first temple city

I heard of an archaeological dig taking place somewhere in the north of Kuwait.

A team had discovered and begun excavating a site that is believed to be 7500 years old. This predating the ancient Sumerian cities of Mesopotamia, like Ur, some 100 km to the north and which are believed to be the first organised cities where civilisation first took root.

I’d visited these cities of Ur and Babylon before and always felt that I have a stake of sorts in them.

Archaeologists put a great deal of time, effort, and expense to find and excavate these locations and usually have to do it piecemeal whenever they can. For this reason they keep the locations of their finds secret until they have fully documented them and established the whats, wheres, whos and so forth.

So going in what little info I had on potential location, I took a coupe of friends out to the general area where I;d found an unusual mark on Google maps.

The location I found on Google maps turned out to be some sort of old military position, probably from the 2003 Iraq war.

So mission unaccomplished but a cool discovery and much fun was had, and an dinner of Indian food to see us all to sleep.

I found a new potential location about 30k north, so that will be the next search in the next few weeks.

Here are some pictures from the day.

Here’s what a press release says about the find:

QUOTE:
SOPHISTICATED human civilisation may have started further back in time than previously thought after a 7,500-year-old temple city was uncovered.

Archaeologists working at site in Kuwait have discovered a new temple and public plaza that suggest an advanced society.

The Ubaid civilisation — of which little is known — were the first agricultural settlers to move into the region which would later become Sumer in the southernmost region of ancient Mesopotamia.

The ancient culture is characterised by large village settlements, with sophisticated irrigation techniques and the appearance of the first temples.

Professor Bielinski said: “Indications suggest that it was a building with a cultic (religious) function and it combines elements of the Ubaid culture.”
