Nippur Digitized: The University of Pennsylvania Excavations at Nippur 1889-1900.

Aage Westenholz, retired professor of Assyriology at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, has devoted the main part of his professional career to the study of Mesopotamian history and culture in the third millennium B.C. He has published a number of volumes with cuneiform texts from that period, most of them originating in Nippur. In connection with those publications, he also studied the unpublished records of the excavations at Nippur in 1889-1900 that produced the cuneiform texts, in order to establish their archeological background as far as feasible.
