Location Context Title Context Description Description (Modern)
PG/800 This is the death pit that Woolley associated with the tomb chamber of Queen Puabi (PG/800B), though the floor of that chamber is about 2.5 meters lower in depth. The death pit held the remains of more than 20 people as well two oxen, a cart and a potential wardrobe chest. Woolley believed the wardrobe chest had been centrally placed in order to hide the looting hole made into the roof of the PG/789 chamber below. (none)
