    I'll check on that Keith. It was probably in the north as there were areas of high population in the shallow sea-covered regions. The invention of the boomerang aparently dates back to this time - not the come-back, bird killing, one but the heavy man-killing one. The range of this heavy projectile and the increadable speed of its rotating end part made this a WMD of its day. This would have been a 'displaced persons' problem and refugees, of whatever, are not often welcome especially if they place unsupportable preasure on the economy. War would have probably resulted in many places around the world in similar locations. Look at the legends of floods - Abraham's fatherwas probably a refugee at UR, which explains their journy to Haran, they were asked to leave (maybe).
