Royal Cemetery | PG1931 In season 10 Woolley had completed the Royal Cemetery volume (UE2) but he continued to expand the Royal Cemetery area and find more graves. Continuing the PG numbers would be confusing since they would not be included in the main publication of the cemetery. Thus, he shifted his numbering to reflect the year he was digging. Starting at the end of 1931, when season 10 began, he recorded PG1931 instead of solely PG. However, he had stopped the normal Private Graves sequence around the number 1850 (some PG/18xx graves were renumbered in the PG1931 or PG1932 sequence) and 1931 is easily mistaken for a grave in the normal sequence when it is actually a series of graves. Even more confusing, Woolley often shortened the 1931 number to PG31, which is easily confused for PG/31, a grave in Trial Trench E. The general abbreviation PG1931 or PG31 refers to the 1931-1932 Royal Cemetery investigation, revisiting the area along the western side of the Mausoleum of the Ur III kings (area BC). Some of these graves are from the Isin-Larsa/Old Babylonian period and are likely associated with House 30. PG1931 graves were therefore often renamed for publication to LG/xx (Larsa Grave). Objects that were collected from the area but not associated with a particular grave were given the generic PG1931 or PG31 abbreviation. Specific graves were given additional numbers in the sequence PG1931/xx or PG31/xx. The highest number noted in this sequence is PG31/32, but most graves did not have objects or were not recorded since very few specific graves are indicated on the catalog cards. (none)
