Royal Cemetery | PG1932 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 in which he was digging, beginning very late in 1931. When January arrived, he shifted his numbers to PG1932. However, he had stopped the normal Private Grave sequence at around number 1850 (some PG/18xx numbers were renamed PG1931 or PG1932 numbers) and 1932 is easily mistaken for an individual grave when it is actually a series of graves from late in the excavations. Even more confusing, Woolley often shortened the 1932 number simply to PG32, which is easily mistaken for PG/32, a grave in Trial Trench E. The general abbreviation PG1932 or PG32 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. PG1932 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 PG1932 or PG32 abbreviation. Specific graves were given additional numbers in the sequence PG1932/xx or PG32/xx. The highest number noted in this sequence is PG32/80. (none)
