His early work included excavations at Carchemish (1912-14) and the Egyptian site of Tel-el-Amarna (1921-22). He was then chosen to direct the joint British Museum and Univ.

Woolley oversaw the excavation of the prehistoric cemetery at Ur, which included 16 royal tombs with treasures of gold and lapis lazuli and evidence of large-scale human sacrifice. Later excavations led by him were those of the Syrian sites of Al-Mina (1936) and Tell Atchana (1937-39 and 1946-49).
