Jewelry from The Royal Tombs of Ur Detail of a headdress. Not only did Queen Pu-abi's attendants wear this kind of headdress, but so did  many other women in many other tombs. There were so many headdresses that Woolley reported that he was sick of finding them. In the drawing of the "Great Death Pit" there were at least 20 women with similar headdresses. See a high-resolution photograph of the side of the headdress.
