    at least partially, in modern times.  Also, Wikipedia reports on the Ur ziggurat:

    The ziggurat was damaged in the First Gulf War in 1991 by small arms fire and the structure was shaken by explosions. Four bomb craters can be seen nearby and the walls of the ziggurat are marred by over 400 bullet holes.
