Ancient Bronze Age city reemerges from Iraq river after extreme drought

When an extreme drought caused a 3,400-year-old city to reappear from a reservoir on the Tigris River in northern Iraq, archaeologists rushed to excavate it before the waters returned.

The Bronze Age city at an archaeological site called Kemune is a relic of the Mittani Empire (also spelled Mitanni Empire), an ancient kingdom that ruled parts of the north Mesopotamia from about 1500 BC to 1350 BC Researchers have known the remains of the city for a long time, but they can only study them while they are there droughts.
