Ruins of a palace and a temple complex of the Sumerians were found in the ancient city of Girsu, which was located on the territory of modern Iraq. AllDaily writes about this with reference to the press service of the British Museum
The age of the palace is estimated at about 4.5 thousand years. In its place, the researchers found the remains of adobe walls, more than two hundred clay tablets, as well as the ruins of a temple.
The sanctuary was built in honor of the Sumerian god of war and agriculture, Ningirsu — it was in honor of him that the city where the found temple existed was named. The settlement was located in the south of Mesopotamia.
