This bronze statuette of a wild goat is about 3.3 inches (8.4 centimeters) in length and 3.2 inches (8.3 cm) in height. It has a cuneiform inscription on it, which researchers are currently deciphering.

"In some cases the artifacts were re-used by villagers after they were found. In this photo the stone with the measuring stick on it is actually the torso of a life-size human statue. It had been re-used for modern-day construction."
It makes me wonder how much history has been lost because things were carted away and used for other things.

Noted. Such an interesting area. It is amazing that after thousands of years so much is being found today. Thank you for the information.

Sad to think of that they will never find in Iraq...along with "Weapons of Mass Destruction".

Let's have more digs and museums, and fewer missiles and land mines
