Context Title: PG/789     
Context Name (Publication): PG 789 (Royal Tomb)     
Context Description: Woolley called this the 'King's Grave' because of its elaborate death pit that included many weapons. The main chamber, however, had been looted, leaving only a few scattered remains. The death pit contained the remains of more than 60 people, six of whom wore helmets and stood at the dromos/entrance as if to guard it.
