In addition to being one of the first cities, Uruk was the main force of urbanization and state formation during the Uruk period, or 'Uruk expansion' (4000–3200 BC).Who first discovered Uruk and Warka?
The location of Uruk was first scouted by William Loftus in 1849. He excavated there in 1850 and 1854.
