Archaeological Journeys from Hell to Ur

It has been a big couple weeks with archaeological announcements.

First, as everyone likely knows by now, the "Gates of Hell/Pluto" or "the Plutonion" was supposedly discovered by archaeologists in Turkey.

And now there have been reports of a major excavation occurring in southern Iraq near the ancient city of Ur, famous for being Abraham's purported birthplace.  The dig site was originally identified by satellite, and they appear to have found a huge administrative complex about the size of a football field.
