The development of the art of war has been continuously carried out since its origins dating back the mists of the ancient past. We do not have written sources concerning military history and its components in the context of the oldest civilizations. Basing on the preserved artifacts, we can merely assume how wars and battles were waged in distant historical epochs. However, some exhibits have managed to survive and they could bring us closer to the mentioned above issues. One of these artifacts is the Standard of Ur exhibited in the British Museum. This item representing Sumerian art comes from the early predynasty period (2900-2334 BC) and was found in one of the royal tombs in the ancient city of Ur. The author of the article has suggested several tactical possibilities how the battle presented on the artifact could have been fought taking into considerations clues and hints that the ancient artist placed on the masterpiece.
