The Hirbemerdon Tepe Archaeological Project

"The Hirbemerdon Tepe Archaeological Project has provided a unique opportunity to study the development of complex societies in the upper Tigris river valley through a combination of excavation and intensive survey. The site of Hirbemerdon Tepe was a medium-size settlement located along the west bank of the upper Tigris valley of south-eastern Turkey in the Diyarbakir province. Archaeological work at the site commenced in 2003 and will terminate in 2012 when the valley will be flooded by the completion of the Ilisu Dam."
