Archaeological sites, landscapes and monuments in Iraq

Hoofd priesteres Uruk-Warka, gevonden Febr. 1939

Prof. Böhl visited several archaeological sites in 1932 and 1939. In 1939 he was present when Nöldeke discovered the famous head of Uruk-Warka, and he probably made the pictures of it in situ. From Uruk-Warka he made several trips to survey tells in the surroundings. Remarkable is his portrait taken with Tell Djid as background, as he made plans to excavate this site. He never did.
