Facing an Empire

Hirbemerdon Tepe and the Upper Tigris Region during the Early Iron Age and Neo-Assyrian Period
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0146-3
Recent archaeological discoveries within the Upper Tigris region in Southeastern Turkey offer a unique opportunity to understand the dynamics of the Assyrian Empire borderlands. Within a few years most of the region will be irreversibly submerged, due to the construction of the Ilisu dam, the biggest hydroelectric power plant project in Turkey. It is of paramount importance to understand and record as much data as possible about the local communities and the foreign connections that flowered in this area.
