THE twelfth season of our joint expedition, with the British Museum, to Ur has now begun. This will be a short campaign, principally devoted to completing certain unfinished tasks and to getting all in order, with the idea that with the close of the season, excavations at Ur will be brought to an end.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, it has been necessary to abandon for the present season our expedition to Tell Billa and Tepe Gawra. It is hoped that another year will see resumption of activities at these ancient north-Mesopotamian sites.
