The Standard of UR

My colleague, Frances Coffey, sent me this site on the Standard of Ur and this one from the BBC. She has a great idea about how to use the images--have the kids analyze it and try to apply the characteristics of civilization to it. At both sites, you can enlarge the image and study smaller parts of it. The Standard of UR is one of the BBC's greatest objects in the world and shows the earliest depiction of a wheeled vehicle.
