Stumbled upon in my research of the Royal Tombs of Ur…

“This chamber was the tomb of the queen to whom belonged the upper pit with its ass chariot and other offerings…”

Then continuing to talk about how the asses were adorned in beads of silver and lapis lazuli makes it all the more awesome. I love my major.

tee hee!
