Penn Museum Hands over Ancient Clay Tablets to Iraqi Embassy

  • Archaeologists from the University of Pennsylvania's Penn Museum delivered the fragments of 387 clay tablets to Iraq's embassy in Washington D.C. in the start of a repatriation process. The museum's researchers determined that the tablets, which were excavated nearly a century ago in the ancient Mesopotamian city of Ur, were used to document economic transactions—similar to modern day receipts.
  • The tablets were retrieved between 1922 and 1934 during excavations jointly sponsored by the Penn Museum and the British Museum. Roughly 7,500 tablets and fragments were brought to Philadelphia under a loan agreement with the Iraqi government stating that they would be researched at the university museum and then returned.
