Fragment of a figurine of a ruler, 3500 - 3300 BC is displayed at the exhibition ' Uruk  5,000 Years of the Megacity' at the Pergamon Museum Berlin, Wednesday, April 24, 2013. Berlin’s Pergamon Museum is offering visitors a glimpse of perhaps the world’s first real metropolis in a new exhibition that traces the long history of Uruk, in present-day Iraq. The show marks a century of excavations at Uruk. But even now, organizers say that only about 4.5 percent of the sprawling site in the Iraqi desert has been explored. (AP Photo/Markus Schreiber)
