Archaeology was my second interest in college... I would love to be on this dig!

Archaeologists in Iraq believe they may have found the lost tomb of King Gilgamesh - the subject of the oldest "book" in history.

The Epic Of Gilgamesh - written by a Middle Eastern scholar 2,500 years before the birth of Christ - commemorated the life of the ruler of the city of Uruk, from which Iraq gets its name.

Now, a German-led expedition has discovered what is thought to be the entire city of Uruk - including, where the Euphrates once flowed, the last resting place of its famous King.

Here's where the thead was discussed earlier during April:

There have been no further updates to my knowledge, so I'm not sure what the current situation is.
Gilgamesh was a brave man, great legend (was he a legend, or more?)
Not being the master of ancient mythology, I still haven't understood how he is two-thirds god and one-third human...
Wish I was there too,
