Ur When Woolley lists context only as 'Ur' on his object catalog cards he tends to mean that it was found somewhere within the confines of the city wall but no more specific than that. These are often surface finds that Woolley felt did not require more specific find spot information. Those found outside the city walls were typically recorded as 'brought in' followed by the name of the broad region from which they were brought in by the workers. (none)
