Penn Museum Discovers 6,500-Year-Old Man in Storage Closet


A forgotten 6500-year-old skeleton was found in the storage closet of the Penn Museum in Philadelphia.

Dr. William Hafford, the museum’s Ur Digitalization Project Manager, has re-discovered the skeleton, which had been listed as "Not Accounted For" in 1990.

British archeologist Sir Leonard Woolley first unearthed the human remains in 1929 or 1930 during an expedition in the Mesopotamian city of Ur, located in what is now southern Iraq.
