2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!

Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day

* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "".  If it starts with" (or "") you will get this error because "" is not technically the same website as "". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

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?

The Cauldron's server is expensive and requires monthly payments. Please become a Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor if you can. Donations are needed every month. Without member support, we can't afford the server.
