The small digitized archive comprises drawings and photos made by Hans J. Nissen, many of which were not included in the book, The Uruk Countryside. Most of the material consists of pottery, but other ceramic artifacts, stone and metal objects as well as inscribed bricks were also documented. All materials were recorded in the field. The goal of this website is to provide online access to this remaining archival documentation of the Uruk-Warka survey.

In addition to the common documentation methods of cylinder seals by rolled impression and photography, this collection also offers 3D-models and digital impressions. The 3D-scans can be performed without impacting the objects, thus reducing the risks. This method allows even the most fragile of seals to be documented, including those too delicate to be used for a rolled impression. These scans offer a true-to-scale reproduction of the seals.
