Private Houses and Graves in the Diyala Region

"The houses excavated in the Diyala region during the 1930s are still, however, of unique importance for the history of Mesopotamian architecture, since the information they yielded has never been duplicated nor superseded. Some of this information has already been published in the preliminary reports of the Iraq Expedition. In the present definitive publication the architectural remains are more fully presented, and the exact locations of the finds that were associated with them are recorded. These private houses range from about the middle of the Protoliterate period, through the Early Dynastic and Agade periods, and into Gutian, Ur III, and Isin-Larsa times."
