The site was excavated by Iraqi archaeologist Taha Baqir of the Department of Antiquities and Heritage from 1945 to 1963, discovering about 2000 tablets. Stories about Creation, the flood, The epic of Gilgamesh, and other were inscribed on some of the tablets. In 1997 and 1998, the site was worked by a team from Baghdad University and the German Archaeological Institute led by Peter A. Miglus and Laith Hussein. Many other illegally excavated tablets have found their way into various institutions.
