Ur was an ancient city in southern Mesopotamia (modern day Iraq), located near the mouth (at the time) of the Euphrates and Tigris rivers on the Persian Gulf and close to Eridu. It is considered to be one of the earliest known civilizations in world history. Excerpted from Wikipedia the free encyclopedia; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ur
