Mouayad Saeed al-Damerji, a renowned Iraqi archaeologist advising the
antiquities department at the information and culture ministry, told
a news conference the U.S. pictures showed an ancient citadel under
excavation in the northern city of Kirkuk.

He said excavation work had resumed last year at the citadel, which
he believed was first built in 2600 B.C. Houses on the site had been

city then, he said .....


Good Luck!
