Probably a ridiculous dream, but: is it possible to visit Uruk?
« on: February 27, 2012, 01:03:21 am »
Hello, hello, by the way. Long-time reader, first-time poster.

This is admittedly not a historical question, but I thought this forum would be the place to find those most knowledgeable on the subject.

I have been working with Inanna for a couple of years, now, and the longer I do so and the more I read about Sumerian culture, the more I dream about someday visiting Eanna. Does anyone know what would be involved in such a trip? I can find plenty of reading about what happened there when it was a thriving Sumerian city, but very little about what's going on there now. Who controls the site, and how likely would they be to grant permission to visit to a lay-person tourist?

Now, I'm an American, and right now Iraq is not such a great place for an American to be. But if, sometime in the future, the political climate were forgiving enough to try, does anyone have any information about what I would have to do to make it happen?
