Lost treasures from Iraq

As home to one of the oldest civilizations in the world, the nation of Iraq has some of the most important archaeological museums and institutes, many of which have suffered irreparable damage during the war in that country. In order to help with the recovery efforts, the University of Chicago's esteemed Oriental Institute has created this website which contains a number of very useful resources, including various bibliographies documenting the contents of museums and libraries in Iraq and a helpful database of objects contained within the Iraq Museum. Within that database, visitors can view objects by material, their provenance number, or by source. Additionally, the site contains a number of archaeological site photos provided by Professor McGuire Gibson and SPC William Peterson.
